Comment 19 for bug 998156

Similarly I have a USB-connected HP 1050 that started doing this between jobs from gimp, high-res color. All I did was reconnect the printer power supply and restart the printer. No updates or computer restarts.

I got the CUPS packages and reinstalled the printer twice. The only progress was with deletion and reinstall, test pages printed.

In case there are helpful replies I've posted to http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/ubuntu-63/12-04-usb-printer-suddenly-stalls-rendering-completed-4175411133/
