Canon BJ-200??

Post by Ankylo Phre » Wed, 01 Sep 1993 12:30:27



        I just got a Canon BJ-200.  It's nice.  I know nothing about
configuring a printer.  I tried the suggestions in the recent post regarding
a BJ-300.  What I get is...

        lpr: connect: No such file or directory
        jobs queued, but cannot start daemon

        Please help!  I get this message after quitting ghostscript or when
I try to lpr anything.

        I know ghostscript can output to it.  I did it in MS-Windows(please
forgive me)

Thanx in advance

What version of kernel?
Did you ever start lpd? Do you have the subdirs /usr/spool/lpd and
/usr/spool/lp1 ?
Do you have the right entry in /etc/printcap?
One like this?

#

lp:lp=/dev/lp1:sd=/usr/spool/lp1:sh

Try it!

1. Printcap for Canon BJ-200

I just purchased a Canon BJ-200 printer for my computer and am having trouble
finding a printcap file for it.  If there is anyone out there that may have
one or knows were to get one,  I'd appreciate it.  Also,  if there are any other
files or filters or whatever that may make my printer run more efficently I'd
appreciate it if you'd let me know.

Thanks for your time in this matter.
