Default how-to revert cups update?

I recently did a system update that included a cups update(s) for
USN-707-1.

I have a USB printer attached: Star Micronics Thermal Printer, Model
TSP100. It was working fine as-of 2.91.2009.

Now I get...

>From Printer configuration -> Print Test Page, I get a dialog that says:

There was an error during the CUPS operation:
'client-error-document-format-not-supported'.


>From /var/log/cups/error_log:

D [27/Feb/2009:14:23:30 -0600] Get-Printer-Attributes

D [27/Feb/2009:14:23:34 -0600] cupsdProcessIPPRequest: 20

D [2

I'd like to revert the cups upgrade to see if that is, indeed, the
source of the problem . Or is there a better solution?

TIA,
Bill

Hello,

I recently spent most of a day trying to get my previously working
printer to print. Windows kept saying that it wasn't connected. [there
aren't any Linux drivers for it so I have to use Windows to print] I
tried everything I could think of, then went online to the Lexmark web
site to see if I could find any answers.

While there I found they had live chat support, so I tried that as I was
out of ideas. The tech ran me through a bunch of tests, and then began
trying to have me adjust the thin plastic ribbon that runs behind the
ink cartridges, and telling me that it had slipped out of it's little
clips on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.

The problem was that the cartridge carrier always moved over to the
extreme left end of the carriage as soon as the printer would be turned
on, and then the power button would begin flashing, and Windows would
complain about no connection to the printer.

I finally gave up on the chat support, and looked around the Lexmark
site for answers again. I finally found a pdf file for my specific model
of printer. [the tech had kept referring me to docs that applied to
other models, insisting that my problem was similar to these]

After reading it for a while, I finally focused on a short notice about
two cases of flashing power button, one slow flashing, and the other
fast flashing. It turns out that if the power button flashes slowly, the
printer thinks it is out of paper. There was what I thought was an
adequate amount of paper already in the sheet feeder, but out of
desperation I loaded more paper in, and the printer began working!

The only problem I had with the printer after all that strife, was there
wasn't enough paper in the sheet feeder for the printer to detect it.
You may indeed have a more complex problem, but it never hurts to try
the simple stuff first. 8-)

Later, Ray Parrish

I'd recommend that you contact Star Micronics as they support Ubuntu 8.04:

<http://www.starmicronics.com/absolutefm/absolutefm/afmviewfaq.aspx?topicid=7&faqid=47>

http://www.starmicronics.com/Supports/Download.aspx

They have probably run across this since the security update & may be
your best source.
