I'm generally happy to be using Ubuntu Linux. It takes up less space and hogs less memory and I can generally find help online when I need to do something arcane.

But I am sick and tired of my printer not functioning after every single upgrade since three upgrades ago. I don't have an exotic printer (HP Laserjet P1102), it's hooked up directly to my USB port, nothing fancy at all. CUPS online interface detects it, adds it and then it still refuses to print a test page. HPlip can detect/add it about half of the time but that still doesn't make it run. I just want to be able to print, damnit.

Stupid thing is, this happens just far enough apart that I lost my notes of how I fixed it last time. I don't know, maybe I did something wrong and I'm getting a message from the Karmic Koala?
