|I am trying to setup my USB printer on a Raspberry Pi. I compiled the kernel without the USB_PRINTER module, but anyway it is not working better with the USB_PRINTER driver and cups is unable to find the printer driver. However, if I copy it manually from the gutenprint filetree and put it in /etc/cups/ppd it is working. Why cups is unable to find the printer driver itself?
Here are some details:
- Cups 1.7.5
- Gutenprint 5.2.10
- Kernel 3.12.26
- libusb 1.0.18
- Printer Epson Artisan-50
This printer was previously installed on another Gentoo x86_64 machine with cups 1.7.5 and gutenprint 5.2.9 and cups was able to find the driver itself. And in fact, I looked at the file in /etc/cups/ppd to get a hint on which file in gutenprint contains the appropriate driver for the printer.

Any hints about what is going on?
