Hi

Im kinda a linux newbie, i've been "using" for about 3 months now after windows died. and i enjoy it.

Apprently there are USB problems with Dell's 4500 desktop series and the newish kernel... which is apprently why my Hp printer does not work. So i was wondering if there is a work around to the problem (without reverting to an old kernel).

So, here is the problem:
I plug in the printer (HP 3520)... and the dmesg reads:

usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: device not accepting address 2, error -110
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 3
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: device not accepting address 3, error -110
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 4
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: device not accepting address 4, error -110
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 5
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: control timeout on ep0out
usb 2-1: device not accepting address 5, error -110

obviously if i am getting these messages the KDE print manager is not going to work... I had already tried and it sends the test page and claims that it is sent, but atlas the printer remains dorment.

Ive done some searching and found that the problem is Unique to dell 4500 series and it is much better documented here (http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0404.2/0883.html) but there seems to be no solution so i need some help... even if its a gentle shove in the "download the friggen' patch" direction.

any thoughts?

Thanks
-Ken

I had a similar problem. I fixed it by removing kernel support for EHCI and adding support for UHCI. More detailed information at:
