HP Printing Problem & Printing.HOWTO can't help!!!

Post by Anthony L » Fri, 12 Aug 1994 07:53:51



Sorry I know I'm not supposed to post & ask help on specific printer
filters, but I've tried every step on the Printing.HOWTO, got the print
to /dev/nul work, but if I print to /dev/lp0 it'll say device not found,
and /dev/lp1 will result in my printer feeding blank pages out.

I'm using a HP4 and I'm 90% sure my printcap is set correctly.  I know
I need a filter for the HP, but trying to write my own filter turned out
to be a mess.  I either get blank pages when I do "lp", or I get a page
w/ one or a few nonsense characters.

Help in anyway will greatly be appreciated, and thanx in advance!

Hey,

I tried to install my HP deskjet 520 under Linux since a long time
but I always have a lot of problems

The last one is that when i start a job linux can't start the daemon
printer but i have followed the HOWTO for the permissions

I search the EXACTLY FILES and the GOODS PERMISSIONS that i have to
             ^^^^^^^^^^^^^         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
use and if possible a GOOD FILTER for the HP DESKJET 520 printer
                      ^^^^^^^^^^^         ^^^^^^^^^^
(filter to solve the staircase effect )

PLEASE HELP ME -- HELP ME
