Weirdness with hplip package in Debian wheezy

Friday 2 January 2015 by Bradley M. Kuhn

I suspect this information is of limited use because it's far too vague. I didn't even file it as a Debian bug because I don't think I have enough information here to report a bug. It's not dissimilar from the issues reported in Debian bug 663868, but the system in question doesn't have foo2zjs installed. So, I filed Debian Bug 774460.

However, in searching around the Internet for the syslog messages below, I found very few results. So, in the interest of increasing the indexing on these error messages, I include the below:

            Jan  2 18:29:04 puggington kernel: [ 2822.256130] usb 2-1: new high-speed USB device number 16 using ehci_hcd

            [last two repeat until unplugged]
            

I really think the problem relates specifically to hplip 3.12.6-3.1+deb7u1, as I said in the bug report, the following commands resolved the problem for me:

            # dpkg --purge hplip
            # dpkg --purge system-config-printer-udev
            # aptitude install system-config-printer-udev
