Hi all!!

I have annoying problem.

Cups make print after re-adding printer only: My printer is HP 1102w (LaserJet).

1.Starting cups (printer is already added to cups by localhost:630 and hplip is used)
2. Trying to print (for example in firefox, libreoffice and etc.) but no luck.
3. Deleting printer from cups and adding it into cups again.
4. Printer is working

So, for next printing I should do these steps again and again :(

hplip-plugin is custom:

src_unpack() {
        unpack_makeself "hplip-${PV}" || die 'unpack failed'

src_install() {
        local hplip_arch=$(use amd64 && echo 'x86_64' || echo 'x86_32')

        insinto /$(get_libdir)/udev/rules.d
        doins *.rules || die

        insinto "${HPLIP_HOME}"/data/firmware
        doins *.fw.gz || die

        for plugin in *-${hplip_arch}.so; do
                local plugin_type=prnt
                case "${plugin}" in
                        fax_*) plugin_type=fax ;;
                        bb_*)  plugin_type=scan ;;

                exeinto "${HPLIP_HOME}"/${plugin_type}/plugins
                newexe ${plugin} ${plugin/-${hplip_arch}} || die "failed to install ${plugin}"

        cat >> "${ED}/var/lib/hp/hplip.state" << _EOF_
installed = 1
eula = 1
version = ${PV}

There is no any related error in cups logs :(

Then, which driver is best for that type of printer?

I hope for your experience and tips.
