This is a little complex to follow. It's taken me two weeks to define
the problem without finding a solution. Basically, my HP
psc_1310_series printer keeps becoming un-enabled and removed as
default. Here is what happens:
I login, check my printer_config settings and my HP psc_1310_series
printer is check marked as enabled. Open a word processing or text
editing program such as Open Office Writer, AbiWord, emacs or gedit and
try and print a test page. The test page is put in the queue but no
printing. I again check my printer_config; my HP psc_1310_series
printer is no longer enabled. If I re-checkmark the enabled box and
'Apply', the printer immediately prints everything in the queue even if
I have cancelled all the outstanding jobs.
Everything continues to print fine in every program until I log out and
in again. The cycle continues with the printer_config being marked as
enabled until I call a new test print job.
I am baffled.
