Default Cannot print from R61 ThinkPad

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

In the four months I have owned this machine I have not been successful
in printing from it. (It has Lenny installed, kernel 2.6.26-1-686;
machine is dual core.)

Whenever I try, CUPS shows the job, but shows the following with respect
to the printer:

LJ2P (Default Printer) "recoverable: Network host '192.168.0.10' is
busy; will retry in 5 seconds..."
Description: Hewlett-Packard LaserJet II P
Location: Solarium
Printer Driver: HP LaserJet 2P - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.0.2
Printer State: processing, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: lpd://192.168.0.10/P1

- From that point on nothing happens. (I have waited for a response for
at least ten minutes, which is surely enough to know whether *anything*
will happen.)

I cannot understand why the "recoverable: ..." message is displayed, as
there is nothing else being sent to the printer from anywhere except the
one job I want to print from the ThinkPad.

In CUPS I can stop the printer and restart it so that CUPS displays the
following:

LJ2P (Default Printer)
Description: Hewlett-Packard LaserJet II P
Location: Solarium
Printer Driver: HP LaserJet 2P - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.0.2
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: lpd://192.168.0.10/P1

After cancelling the job and resending it, CUPS once again displays the
"recoverable: ...", with the same result as before.

My spouse is able to print from his P4 box with Etch installed, to the
same print server URL, but I have never been able to from my ThinkPad.

I would appreciate guidance as to what is wrong I what I can do about it.

Regards, Ken Heard, Toronto.

Second hit for "recoverable: Network host" suggest using "socket" uri
instead of lpd.

I tried all the "sensible" combinations of protocol and uri, to no
avail; none of them worked. In one or two cases five to seven after I
send a file for printing the "form feed" light on the printer will light
up, but nothing will print. I tried for fun a few times ten minutes
after that light went on to do a manual form feed. The printer would
then spew out a single sheet of paper with one line of random characters
at the top.

On the one desktop I have that works, a P4 with Etch, LPD/LPR host or
printer with the lpd URI works as it should. So something else must be
wrong.
