Photosmart C3100: I/O error
My neighboors are running Ubuntu 7.10, and they bought a new printer, a HP (on my advice). It's a Photosmart C3100.
When I first plugged it in the computer, Ubuntu immedeately detected it and said it was ready to print. When I tried to print however, the printer picked paper, but didn't do anything. On the screen, I got an "unknown error".
Then I tried to plug the printer into another USB-port, and restarted the computer, and the printer worked better. Well, it prints now but does it very slow. Most of the times it stops when half of the document has been done, so it won't finish. I then get the same "unknown error". This is what the syslog sais:
io/hpmud/musb.c 625: invalid deviceid wIndex=1, retrying wIndex=100: Broken pipe
ERROR: i/o printing; will retry in 30 seconds
usbfs: process 6040 (hp) did not claim interface 0 before use
How can I fix this so my neighbours can print properly? Or is it a bug?
BTW, thanks for hplip, I really like to see that some vendors take open source seriously!
