I had a similar problem, but I found this solution:
in the CUPS interface ( http://localhost:631 ) I removed the printer,
and then installed it again.

BTW, there appear to have been quite a number of bug reports concerning
this.

Thanks.

When I try to add a printer I don't see parallel port as a choice. I
even did dkpg-reconfigure cups and parallel was checked. I modified an
old printer which was on a parallel port and now I get various errors
from different choices of drivers for the printer.


I'm not sure what to try next.

Paul

I know of someone who had the same problem, but successfully applied
this more drastic solution. Maybe worth trying.

1. aptitude purge cups (+ automatic removal of driver-gutenprint,
cups-pdf, hpijs-ppds, hplip)
2. aptitude install cups cups-pdf cups-driver-gutenprint hpijs-ppds
hplip
3. reinstall the printers with the CUPS webinterface.

Can't be sure, but you might want to check the permissions of
/usr/lib/cups/backend
If the permissions are set to accessible only by root, try
(as root):
chmod go+rx /usr/lib/cups/backend

Now I can print at least text and PS files but *not* PDF's. There seems to be
a long-standing bug which has been closed at least once but seems to still be in
Cup 1.4.4

stopped "/usr/lib/cups/filter/pdftopdf failed"

Thanks,

Paul
