    Unhappy Label Printer under Cups - Pause after each Job


    Hello.

    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?



    The problem:
    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
    Jun 18 11:27:08 kernel: [ 735.820344] usblp0: removed
    Jun 18 11:27:08 kernel: [ 735.821795] usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 1 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x04E8 pid 0x3433
    Jun 18 11:27:18 kernel: [ 746.219856] usblp0: removed
    Jun 18 11:27:18 kernel: [ 746.221544] 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?
