Subject: [gentoo-user] Cups can't see my USB printer

Hello list,

After a long spell of no printing, I'm trying to get my mono laser working
again. I'm in the lp group, and the USB interface seems to be working:

# lsusb | grep Kyocera
Bus 003 Device 008: ID 0482:000e Kyocera Corp. FS-1020D Printer

But the KDE system settings applet can't see the printer, nor can Firefox at
http://localhost:631/. I've tried adding a manual configuration, but the
printer is still not found.

I even tried the kernel module usblp, but that didn't find it either so I
got rid of the module.

Do I have a defunct printer?

-- 
Regards,
Peter.
