USB printer possible on LinuxPPC 2000?

Post by Don Pedr » Thu, 29 May 2003 23:31:37

Hi All

I'm a relative newbie to Linux and have a stable installation of
LinuxPPC 2000.  I tried allsort of others (YDL, Debian) but this is the
only one that works for me & my Mac so far.

That's all fine BUT my printer has a USB connection.  Is there any way
of configuring a USB printer for that dist?  USB gets a mention in
dmesg, but I can't find any mention of usb in manuals, info, howto.
Zilch.  BTW I have found a gimp_print.ppd for the printer (Epson C41UX
- think "sucks") but there is such a ramp of upgrading to do to get to
that version of GIMP I'll be dead and buried long before I get anywhere
near it.

Any advice.  If it's impossible I'll relax!

TIA if anyone can help me out.

I've checked the FAQs and newsgroups, and although atl east the
USB Zip supposedly works with LPPC-2000, I can't figure out what device it
shows up on.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to mount a Zip disk using a USB zip drive
(or a regular floppy disk, using a USB floppy drive).
