Can anyone help please?
I have a newly-installed SPARC LX running 2.6. The OS is an End-User
installation and the machine has 32Mb RAM. I attached an HPLaserjet
4plus to the parallel port on the Sun and used Admintool to try and
configure it. Common sense tells you what to fill the fields out with
in the Add Printer... window but I cannot get this operation to work.
The reason is the printer type.....I selected 'HP Printer' first and
this came up with an 'Add printer failed' error. The only way I can
get it to work is by putting 'unknown' into this field. Then it does
it's stuff and works fine. However the text printouts do not carriage
return properly and only line feed so the printouts go off the page
very quickly! I tried to hack the configuration file in the /etc/lp
location to change the printer type to 'hplaser' but this just
prevents any printouts from happening at all?!?!
