Epson Stylus 740 printer problem

Post by Stephen Mattic » Sun, 08 Apr 2001 07:27:14

I am trying to get my Epson Sytlus 740 printer setup on my Debian linux
system (latest stable version).  The printer port (/dev/lp0) is
recognized just fine and seems to think there is a printer attached, but
when I try printing a test page in CUPS or with apsfilter or from just
trying standard text from the command line, nothing happens (no
lights/sounds/etc.).  I know the port is ok because my Zip drive works
fine off of the port. (I've tried printing with and without the drive

Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?
