    ohow do i check if it is recognizeing the printer

    i went to
    /proc/bus/usb
    and under 003 i have 001 and 004

    when i unplug the printer 004 goes away when i plug it back in it reappears

    so i kno it is reading that there is a usb device there but how do i check to see if
    it recognizes that it is actually a printer tht is connected

    It probably doesn't need to, since you will most probably need a user-space tool for the printer as well. Check linuxprinting.org, they'll surely have it.
    If you really want to check the info about it anyway, check either /proc/bus/usb/devices, or run lsusb as root.
