Bug Description

HP printer deskjet F4100 series was working fine with ubuntu 9.04. I ugraded to 9.10 and the printer does not respond to the command "Print".
Under printer configuration local host - view print "Q" - job - processing - printer may not be connected.

Printer is very much connected .

I have an HP Officejet 5610v USB connected to a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5934 with Ubuntu 9.10 and I also have the same problem. I try to power cycle the printer, disconnect then reconnect the USB cable, and click System -> Administration -> Printing -> right click the printer icon and check Enabled. The only thing that recovers this is to restart the laptop, but if after I do so I disconnect then reconnect the USB cable, then I would have to restart the laptop again.

It may be due to a problem with system-config-printer-udev:

apt-cache policy system-config-printer-udev
  Installed: 1.1.12+git20090826-0ubuntu8
  Candidate: 1.1.12+git20090826-0ubuntu8
  Version table:
 *** 1.1.12+git20090826-0ubuntu8 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com karmic/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

The solution would most likely be to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 which contains the newest version of system-config-printer-udev.

Can you all follow the steps of the sections "CUPS error_log" and "USB printer" on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingProblems? Can you also post the output of

lpstat -r -p -v

I upgraded to Lucid and the problem seems to be resolved. If it happens again I'll rebug.
