HP Deskjet printer & RH-6.1

HP Deskjet printer & RH-6.1

Post by Nguyen-Dai Qu » Fri, 29 Oct 1999 04:00:00



Hi,
I have a local printer HP Deskjet 520 (non ps printer). Un der RH-5.2 I
configured :

lp0|hp520|dj520:\
        :sd=/var/spool/lpd/lp0:\
        :mx#0:\
        :sh:\
        :lp=/dev/lp1:\
        :if=/var/spool/lpd/lp0/filter:

It works very well. Now after upgrading to RH-6.1,I try to use
"printtool" for configuring this printer. But this tool can not auto
detect the devices /dev/lp*.

If I try the same config file "printcap", all printed files remain
always in  /var/spool/lpd/lp0 and nothing printed.

I verified "lsmod" and see "lp" module.
Deamon "lpd" is running well.

Any ideas for help me ?
Thanks very much,
Quy'

Parallel Port support not in the Kernel or loaded as Module?

Maybe you need  something like paraport.o?
Oct 27 23:26:49 neo insmod: /lib/modules/2.2.10/misc/parport.o: insmod
char-major-6 failed
....not like on my system which I obviously don't have configured correctly
at the moment.

This has nothing to do with the printer.  Starting in RH6.0,
there is a new way to configure the parallel port.  You
should have the following line in /etc/conf.modules
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
If it is not there, that is the source of your problem.

1. HP Deskjet 520 & RH-6.1 ?

Hi,

It works very well. Now after upgrading to RH-6.1, I try to use
