RedHat Enterprise Server 5 [solved]

Has anybody had any luck with getting the HP Laserjet p1006 to print when connected to a Redhat 5 Server?

I have spent two days - and have made no progress.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

LP

The problem appears to be the HAL daemon. It was changing the device URL.

From the INSTALL file:
CUPS USB NOTES
--------------
    If you are using the USB port, then the URI should be:
        usb:/dev/usb/lp0
        usb:/dev/usb/lp1
    OR
        usb://Samsung/CLP-310%20Series
        usb://Samsung/CLP-310%20Series
        usb://HP/Color%20LaserJet%20CP1215
        usb://HP/Color%20LaserJet%202600n
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201000
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201005
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201018
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201020
        usb://HP/LaserJet%20P1005
        usb://HP/LaserJet%20P1006
        usb://HP/LaserJet%20P1505

    Don't use hp://<whatever> because that is for hplib (a closed source,
    proprietary driver).
