My HP LaserJet P1505 doesn't work after update to Ubuntu 12.04 from 11.10. It's visible to applications and they see when printer is turned on and when doesn't. But when I'm printing any document I'm getting "Printer error" : "connecting-to-device" pop-up message and then "Printing complete" message.

In /var/log/syslog I have the following (please edit message if it goes against the rule to attach so long logs):

I wanted to install HPLIP from hplipopensource.com, but got answer that Ubuntu 12.04 already has the last HPLIP drivers for my model.

Another interesting thing is that before upgrade and in Windows 7 Tonner light and Ready light were on, but in 12.04 only Ready light is on.

Any ideas how to make my printer prints in 12.04?

Did you try running hp-setup to install a "plug-in?" –  Marconius Sep 11 '12 at 2:38

Delete your printer in the printer/CUPS panel. Then go to the ubuntu software center and install HPLIP. During that installation it will detect the printer and prompt you to download drivers directly from HP. DO SO. A reboot and you should be done.

Thanks! It still shows "Printing error" popup message, but it prints now! –  Dmitriy Sukharev May 4 '12 at 23:13
