Printing Problems in Ubuntu 9.04 with HP P3005
I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 with a HP P3005 Laser Printer attached via USB.
Ubuntu picks up the printer and installs fine. Problem occurs when try to print. Send test page to printer is ok, job appears in print queue and then prints out, send second test print to printer, job appears in print queue but no printing. Message appears at bottom of queue "HP Laserjet P3005 may not be connected". Switch printer off and on and job then prints out. Further print jobs encounter the same problem.
I've had this problem since Ubuntu 7.10 with this printer. The HP 2550 also attached to this computer bia usb works ok, as does the HP 1160 on a different system also running Ubuntu 9.04.
I need to get this working as I urgently need to upgrade from 7.04 to 9.04 on all the schools printservers.
Further Notes: Downloaded and installed HPLIP 3.9.4b but made no difference. However, printer works fine if you use the parallel ports....
Thanks (in anticipation)
