printing & lpc

Post by Bria » Wed, 11 Mar 1998 04:00:00



I'm using Red Hat Linux 5.  I have a hewlett packard 682c deskjet
printer.
I can't print from Linux.  I can print using other OS on this computer
though.  . I'm getting the following message:
LPC> Status
lp:
        queing is enabled
        printing is enabled
        1 entry in spool area
        waiting for lp to become ready (offline?)

I don't know what my next step should be.

Are you sure to use the right printer device? What happens if you
print directly to the printer, e.g. do a

echo "Test" >/dev/lp0

or

echo "Test" >/dev/lp1

and see what happens. Maybe this will clear some facts,

1. Urgent: "lpc stat" and "lpc stat lj02" gives different result

Hi All,

"lpc stat" gives the following:

HPLJ4100|lj02:
        printer is on remote host aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd with name text
        queuing is enabled
        printing is enabled
        no entries
        no daemon present

"lpc stat lj02" gives the following:

lj02:
        printer is on device '/dev/lp' speed -1
        queuing is enabled
        printing is enabled
        no entries
        no daemon present

I copied the printcap over from another Alpha on the same network. I can
ping the "ccc" network.
Printing on the other Alpha works fine, and both have the same Tru64 V4.0f.

Any idea please!
Thanks.
