Default USB to Parallel printer cable F12 x64

Hello list;
I have an older HP laserjet IIIP printer.
It has serial and Parallel connectors only.
Of course my MB only has USB.
I have a couple of USB to Parallel smart cables.

I have been using an
"Belkin USB F5U002 "
lsusb: "Bus 006 Device 003: ID 05ab:0002 In-System Design Parallel Port"
, with success.

The other is:
"Epson USB Adapter" (model # ISD-103) smart cable
lsusb: "Bus 005 Device 004: ID 04b8:0002 Seiko Epson Corp. ISD Smart Cable for Mac"

I just put the printer on my F12 box and cannot get it to work.
I had a USB printer working here just fine, so printing works.

lsusb:
Bus 006 Device 003: ID 05ab:0002 In-System Design Parallel Port

This worked fine under Fedora 9/10/11 but not 12.
I am running F12 x64 fully updated.
When I run system-config-printer it is not detected.
It will not let me add a printer.

I tried power-cycling the printer, reseating the USB plug etc.

It seems that the printer setup is invisible to the user now.
What happened to the pull-down list of printers?

KDE Info center -> USB Devices shows:

Class 0((Defined at Interface level))
Subclass 0
Protocol 0
USB Version 1.00

Vendor ID 0x5ab (In-System Design)
Product ID 0x2 (Parallel Port)
Revision 1.04

Speed 12 Mbit/s
Channels 0
Max. Packet Size 0

The printer is connected and powered up.

Plugging/unplugging the Epson cable /var/log/messages:

(yes those funny chars are on the screen)


So how do you connect a parallel printer to a USB port and make it work now?

Thanks
Mick M.



Standard guarantee applies - 30 feet or 30 seconds, whichever comes first.

# find / -name "*your base*" -exec chown us:us {} ;

Did you restart the computer with the printer turned on?

It shouldn't need that, but sometimes it just does.

Cheers,

Paul
