[SOLVED] HPLIP problem (I can't print anymore)

I have psc_1210. Some days ago it was functioning normally. Today I tried to print but... Under CUPS I can see the printer and the jobs but it wont start printing. I tried hp-toolbox but as normal user it says

Running hp-toolbox as root can find the printer. But when i try to print a test page

I removed the printer an tried hp-setup. Everything went ok. It could detect the printer an install it normally. But I can't to print. The scanner works ok with kooka.

Any suggestions?

I had same problem. You must change permission to your usb device (/dev/bus/usb/00X/00X).

Re: [SOLVED] HPLIP problem (I can't print anymore)

I thought of that but... /dev/bus/ doesn't exist anymore. Maybe because of the udev's update. Does it exist in your system?

Re: [SOLVED] HPLIP problem (I can't print anymore)

Ok, found the problem. I was using the old kernel 26 viper. It seems it isn't compatible with the latest udev etc. Booting with the stock kernel solved the problem. Thanks you very much.
