I had it setup and working but it coughed and I can't get it back.
Particulars: Hardy/Lexmark P4350 attached to XP machine shared over Samba/using ADPDF6.ppd driver found on XP machine. This was all setup using system-config-printer 0.7.81 (system/administration/printing). No print jobs waiting on either machine. Tried printing text file and test pages. Both are sent, print head moves, stops, then all is quiet. Have re-booted both machines, confirmed network status, de-powered printer,...
Where else can I look for information that may help to resolve this issue?

Thanks for the post but still no luck. Now no response from printer at all. Any other thoughts?
