HP laserjet P1006 not working on Fedora 21 [solved]

Hello,

I've been using HP LaserJet P1006 with Fedora for a few years now - it worked flawslessly till... I've upgraded to Fedora 21 (fresh install).

I've followed steps to install the printer (same way as I did in the past) and... I get printer installed, but it just won't print anything.

dmesg shows printer was found correctly:
[   23.740292] usb 4-5: new high-speed USB device number 7 using ehci-pci
[   23.875172] usb 4-5: New USB device found, idVendor=03f0, idProduct=3e17
[   23.875179] usb 4-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[   23.875183] usb 4-5: Product: HP LaserJet P1006
[   23.875187] usb 4-5: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
[   23.875191] usb 4-5: SerialNumber: AC22Y69
[   23.878628] usblp 4-5:1.0: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 7 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x03F0 pid 0x3E17
I can add printer using `system-config-printers` dialog, but any attempt to print a test page or anything else - fails. I've checked the paper size - it's correctly set to A4.

Side note - in the past, I would hear two warming ups when I switched on the printer - second one was an indication that firmware was loaded correctly. Now the second warmup doesn't happen at all :(

Any help much appreciated! Many thanks!

What does this do:

# cat /usr/share/foo2xqx/firmware/sihpP1006.dl > /dev/usb/lp0

# usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0

???

Did you do a "make install-hotplug"

Executing
cat /usr/share/foo2xqx/firmware/sihpP1006.dl > /dev/usb/lp0
loaded the firmware!

Executing
$ usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0
outputed:
GET_DEVICE_ID string:
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet P1006;CMD:HBS,PJL,ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet P1006;FWVER:20090916;
and after that printer printed the test page :)
