P1006 - Raspberry Pi, test page fails even with USBLP module [solved]

After some work I installed the missing usblp module. Still printing a test page does not work. It says "sending data to printer" but nothing happens.

Here are some return statements

~/foo2zjs $ usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0 
GET_DEVICE_ID string:
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet P1006;CMD:HBS,PJL,ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet P1006;FWVER:20090916;

~/foo2zjs $ lpq
HP_LaserJet_P1006 is ready
no entries

what else am I missing?

Thanks in advance!

well, using

foo2xqx-wrapper testpage.ps > xxx 
cp xxx /dev/usb/lp0

a test page prints just nicely... I try to use cups!

What does this say:

$ cd foo2zjs

$ foo2xqx-wrapper testpage.ps > xxx

$ ls -l xxx
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 92675 May 10 08:21 xxx

$ sudo cp xxx /dev/usb/lp0
...printed OK...

It is a CUPS problem, then.

yes, that works well.

I figured out that just the test page does not print... everything else does, so I guess I do not care for the test page ;) thank you!
