after reinstalling my Solus system in December, CUPS is not able to find my printer anymore. I tried to install the printer using the system settings (GNOME) and also using the CUPS web interface (http://localhost:631 -> "Find New Printers") but the printer does not show up at all. My impression is, that the problem might be related to installing USB printers in general, so I'm sorry, if this bug report is a duplicate.
- The printer is an Epson XP-625 connected via USB.
- The package epson-inkjet-printer-escpr is installed.
- The printer is not shown in CUPS at all
- The printer used to work perfectly before the reinstalling Solus.
The output of dmesg is:
