I am running Debian Linux Stable (regularly updated) with LXDE desktop and it is otherwise running very well. I have HP Laserjet 1020 connected to it via USB. When I switch on the printer, I get following entries in 'desg' command output:
[ 5704.468021] usb 1-7: new high-speed USB device number 7 using ehci-pci [ 5704.636216] usb 1-7: New USB device found, idVendor=03f0, idProduct=2b17 [ 5704.636221] usb 1-7: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 5704.636223] usb 1-7: Product: HP LaserJet 1020 [ 5704.636226] usb 1-7: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard [ 5704.636228] usb 1-7: SerialNumber: JL1CQE6 [ 5704.639828] usblp 1-7:1.0: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 7 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x03F0 pid 0x2B17 [ 5708.797352] usblp0: removed
(I think there may be a problem in last line)
In /dev folder, there is not entry with 'usb' in name:
root@debian-netinst:/dev# ls -ltrh | grep -i usb root@debian-netinst:/dev#
There are some entries having 'lp':
root@debian-netinst:/dev# ls -ltrh | grep -i lp crw-rw-r-- 1 root lp 99, 0 Aug 24 10:42 parport0 crw-rw---- 1 root lp 6, 0 Aug 24 10:42 lp0 root@debian-netinst:/dev#
The printer is not shown in browser at site:
The printer is also not found when I run
hp-setup -i as root and select usb option to search for printers.
Where is the problem and how can this be solved?
Edit: The command
lsusb also finds the printer:
# lsusb Bus 005 Device 005: ID 03f0:2b17 Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 1020
Edit: I could not solve the problem despite multiple attempts. Since this was an upgrade from Debian 8 (to 9) where I had installed and removed many programs (and some desktops also), I formatted the partition and did a fresh install of Debian-9. The printer works OK on this new installation.
