Label Printer under Cups - Pause after each Job
Im new here, but this forum already helped me a lot of times by googling.
I need a help with my new debian wheezy server. I'm a linux user for +8years and already spend hours trying to solve this and couldn't so if anyone has a clue.. please help?
I replaced my old server running debian-6.0 with a new one running debian-7.0. I have a DYMO LabelWriter 450 USB Printer on it to print labels.
The labels are printed by a postscript using the lpr command:
lpr -#$qtd -r -P DYMO_LabelWriter_450 /path/to/my/postscript.ps
If i send more than one label to the printer, this command will run multiple times changing only the postscript file path (different label, different ps).
The problem is: the printer pauses seconds between each job/label... and this behavior wasn't like that before - before the printer prints one after another without pauses.
I already tried a lot of things and nothing worked.
One thing i noticed is i got this message for each job i send:
Jun 18 11:26:55 kernel: [ 723.602744] usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 1 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x04E8 pid 0x3433

i already tried to copy my old /etc/cups folder into my new server.
i tried to remove usblp module and blacklist it..
i tried to reinstall the printer in cups..
i tried cups 1.6.2 insted of 1.5 too
and tried more things.. without sucess
The problem is.. the printer is pausing between jobs.. how do i remove that? any ideas!?
I'm getting crazy about this !

No ideas why the cups is pausing after each job?
I have an idea.. it's because the /dev/usblp0 is removed then "redetected" each time.. and this takes time, maybe?
