I'm sorry to bother you again, but I'm having the same problem and I
need more detailed explanations. I've got an HP 820Cxi, apparently
visible from /dev/lp1 (under DOS it works), which won't print under Red
Hat 4 (and it wouldn't print under Slackware, either):
- using a DOS program (ugh) I found out my parallel port's IRQ (7);
(what would I use under Linux?)
- I did tunelp /dev/lp1 -i 7
- trying echo "hello printer" > /dev/lp1 won't print
- now: in which boot-script should I look for what?
the rest would be simple, at home I've installed an HP 400 with a
standard filter and all works fine. Only this damned printer is driving
Would you please send me some more tips?
Thank you in advance,
