Deskjet printer not working

I can't make my printer work (Arch 0.7.1, Kernel 2.6.14, parallel printer, HP Deskjet710C).
I have followed the CUPS setup routine in the wiki, and installed cups, loaded the modules parport and parport_pc.
In the localhost interface I chose Parallel port (HP Deskjet 710C)
and in the model/driver part: HP Deskjet 710C Foomatic/pnm2ppa, which I believe is recommended.
Message: "Printer Deskjet has been added successfully". On the next page it is said to be on Device URI: parallel:/dev/lp0
But if I try to print a test page, or anything else, it is listed as "aborted", and nothing happens. If I try to restart job, it says: client-error-not-possible.
Same result if I try to print as root.
If I use the KDE printer interface, it says: "Test page successfully sent to printer Deskjet". Which sounds reassuring enough, but it isn't true. Can someone help me...?

The output from /var/log/cups/error_log is:

Re: Deskjet printer not working

I also have the same problem, I thought it was with pnm2ppa so I downloaded it and make && make install and configured /etc/pnm2ppa.conf to version 720 but still the same thing. Did you install pnm2ppa?

Re: Deskjet printer not working

People have been having trouble with cups dying to some reason, or not working at all if backgrounded. Have you tried to restart it?
/etc/rc.d/cups restart

I'm not sure what that is but on gentoo this setup fine, I'm guessing its pnm2ppa because its the only package pacman didn't have and I'm guessing I installed it wrong.

Re: Deskjet printer not working

pacman wanted to update foomatic with foomatic-db and now it works, go figure. whats the difference between these two packages?
