http://askubuntu.com – I have an HP OfficeJet J4580 printer directly connected to an Ubuntu laptop. Everything worked fine with Ubuntu 10. Yesterday, I upgraded to Ubuntu 12 and now, when I send something to the printer, the printer prints a few lines but then stops because it autonomously disables itself. If I enable it manually, the printer will print another few lines and then stop again. I must do this manual enable several times in order to get one page printed! I have tried re-booting the laptop and switching on/off the printer but this does not help. I can't think of anything else ... What is happening? Wha (HowTos)
