dot matrix printer over parallel to usb adapter trouble with kubuntu 11.10
hi i try to use my dot matrix printer it works on kubuntu 11.04 but now on 11.10 it does not work.
dmesg shows this error message:
[ 624.868049] usb 4-1: new full speed USB device number 3 using ohci_hcd
[ 630.164988] usb 4-1: usbfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed cmd udev-configure- rqt 161 rq 0 len 1024 ret -110
lsusb shows this:
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 067b:2305 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2305 Parallel Port
many people claim that this printer address works as a workaround parallel:/dev/usb/lp0 but this only works for me in Kubuntu 11.04 and not in 11-10
anyone out there with a helping hand?
