Lexmark Printers / bi-directional parallel

Lexmark Printers / bi-directional parallel

Post by Scott MacDonal » Fri, 09 Jan 1998 04:00:00



Has anyone ever seen support for Lexmark printers on Linux.  I have a
2030, but can't use it at all under Linux.  These printers use a
bi-directional parallel port, and make use of no hardware controls at
all.  There isn't even an 'on' switch, every thing is done via
software.  Even for basic text printing Linux does not realize that the
printer is on-line.

Any hints would be welcome.  Thanks in advance...

Jeffrey,

The following Lexmark printers utilize a print language that is made for
Windows 3.x and Windows 95 environments only.

They do not have PCL3 language.

Color Jetprinter 1000
Color Jetprinter 1020 (non Business Edition)
Color Jetprinter 2030
Color Jetprinter 2050
Color Jetprinter 2070
Color Jetprinter 7000
Color Jetprinter 7200
Winwriter 100
Winwriter 150c
Winwriter 200

Major *bummer* !!!

Anyone got a solution other than having to turn
a Win95 box into the print server for Linux with SMB
for a Lexmark 2030?

 
 
 

1. bi-directional parallel ports/brother HL-630

Hi,

Is there currently support for bi-directional parallel port communication
in the kernel? (besides PLIP, I guess)- I recently purchased a Brother
HL-630 laser printer and the software that came with it is capable of
incredible things with the printer in DOS and Windows, most of which
cannot be changed via the buttons on the printer.  Since I'm DOS- and
Windows-less, I was dwelling on developing something to allow
me/you/whoever to do these things in Linux and don't want to be
redundant.  (So if you're working on it or it's already there and it's
invisible, please let me know!)

Thanks.

P.S: I'm still prodding IOMEGA for info for all you people out there...  :)
