Greetings,

I have a computer with these:
-----cpu -amd64 2 cores
-----o/s cblfs 64-bit linux kernel-2.6.35.4  kde-4.4.5  
-----printing cups-1.4.3 epson-BX300F (a usb printer)


I used localhost:631 to configure cups.  
##########################
----running lpinfo -v (no usb printers are listed)

root [ home/linteg ]#  /usr/sbin/lpinfo -v
network ipp
direct scsi
network lpd

------ running  lpstat  -p -d:

printer EPSON_Stylus_Office_BX300F is idle.  enabled since Tue Sep 14 16:27:02 
2010
system default destination: EPSON_Stylus_Office_BX300F
root [ home/linteg ]#


----a)trying to print a page from kde
(Nothing happens  but a page is registered  in /var/spool/cups  and 
/var/log/cups.log shows the job as cencelled.
----b)trying to clean the print-head   via the web-interface and the response 
is  "Unable to send command to printer driver!"
----c)requesting the   printing of a test page (via the web-interface)  and a 
completely black-page results,
----d)printing a file via the command line with  'lp -d file'  as follows 
linteg [ ~ ]# lp -d EPSON_Stylus_Office_BX300F  paths
request id is EPSON_Stylus_Office_BX300F-7 (1 file(s))
linteg [ ~ ]# 

resulted as with  c) in  a  black 'blank' page.

This printer performed  'outof'the-box' with cups-1.3.7/kde-4.2.2. No usb 
printer(s) are listed for 'lpinfo -v' so I am wondering if ts a problem with 
the version of cups or hal (and accomplice ConsoleKit)  being now planted  in 
the way.

Advice would be appreciated
