Hi Y'all,

I am trying to bring up an HP PSC1610 printer and have run into the 
following problem.

I hooked up the printer and the cable between one of the USB ports on my 
system everything seems to be correct, however ----

After downloading hplip-0.9.9 and doing a configure, make and make install
on my Ubuntu 5.04 system, successfully.  I issued the following commands:

sudo /etc/init.d/hplip restart
sudo /etc/init.d/cupsys restart

Since there were no problems reported so far.

These were followed by - sudo hp-setup

The following information was displayed:

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 0.9.9)
Printer/Fax Setup Utility ver. 1.2

What must I do to correct the problem?

Additionally I ran  the following  command:

sudo lsusb -t
cannot open /proc/bus/usb/devices, No such file or directory (2)

How do I verify that the ports are working???
