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.

lsusb result:
Code:

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04b8:0007 Seiko Epson Corp. Printer
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1bcf:0c31 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. SPIF30x Serial-ATA bridge
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9512/9514 USB Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


Any hints about what is going on?
