Big problem with epson 440 !!!!

Post by Julien » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

My distribution is a debian2.1
My printer is an epson stylus color 440
My gs is correctly configurated with the stc_h.upp driver.
And I use apsfilter to generate my /etc/printcap and to use a filter
When I try to print the test of the apsfilter setup, my printer is working

When i try to print with this command :

I ve the error message :

Error: /invalidfileaccess in --.outputpage--
Operand stack:
   1   true
Execution stack:
%interp_exit   .runexec2   --nostringval--   --nostringval--   --nostringval-
-   2   %stopped_push   --nostringval--   2   3   %oparray_pop   --nostringval-
--nostringval--   false   1   %stopped_push   1   3   %oparray_pop   .runexec
Current allocation mode is local
Last OS error: 16
Current file position is 176702

I dont know anything about this errors messages. If somebody can to explain me
what is the problems.

I try to print with the command : lpr

I ve this message :

Status Information:

  connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
   cannot open connection to localhost - Connection refused
   Make sure LPD server is running on the server

And when i try to print with netscape. Nothing

My /etc/printcap is

lp|epson440|epson stylus :\

That s all.


1. Some problems setting up Epson Stylus Color 440

Hi there,

I have setting up aFreeBSD system at home (have only used Debian
before). So far, I like it very much, except for the fact that I
seem to get the printer (Epson Stylus Color 440) to fully work.

Printing text using lpr or cat file > /dev/lpt0 works fine,
also, the
simple text filter 'if-simple' from the Handbook works fine.
What I
cannot get to work is the postscript filter (the one from the
again, using ghostscript).

The Question is: Does anyone know what DEVICE to use, and what
the exact
content of /etc/printcap and the filter should be for this

Also, I've had problems with lpd dying, but that is probably due
to my
messing with it ...

Much obliged,
