serial mouse and serial printer

Post by john w. connoll » Thu, 17 Oct 1996 04:00:00



I have a Pentium 133 box with a Biostar motherboard. Kernel 2.0.20 is
installed and the system is stable. My serial mouse works under X but
not in character mode. Also I have not been able to figure out how to
get my (Apple Laserwrite NT) serial printer to work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Use gpm - check out the man page for full details, but for a microsoft
mouse on /dev/mouse you just do gpm -t ms.

Also see the Serial mouse mini-HOWTO, at your local site or direct from :

1. how to configure serial port for serial printer?

hi

i have a serial postscript printer connected to serial port a
of my sparc clone.  I just need to know what all the serial
port settings need to be in order to print to it.  in admintool,
there are such settings as terminal type, login prompt, service,
and streams modules, as well as others which are either enabled
or disabled.  could some kind soul either tell me what they need
to be, or point me to a howto or faq?  i can't seem to find any
documents that address the process of serial printing in solaris.
thanks.
