Problem with printer

Post by Emmanuel POIZO » Sat, 14 Oct 2000 04:00:00



HI,
I'm one a DS20 server Tru64unix system and I can't configure the printer

connected on it. It's an HP Laserjet5.
I tried to use sysman to configure it but with no success.
How can I do ?
Thanks

Try using Application Manager or launch "lprsetup" command.

Project problem - linux printer port

I am trying to wire a simple video switch to the parallel port of a PC and
have Linux
it.

So far I have made a connector that fools linux into beleiving that it has a
printer
connected, and have sent data to it.

However I dont seem to be able to get the results I expect.

Im using "echo -ne '\361' >/dev/lp0" to output the byte.

I would expect results like this :

28    64    32    16    8    4    2    1     dec        oct

1       1      1      1                         1 = 1 (241)   361
1       1      1      1                  1        = 2 (242)   362
1       1      1      1             1             = 3 (244)   346
1       1      1      1      1                    = 4 (248)   370

What i'm getting is very confusing.........

Does anyone know if    a) the LP device is trying to do CRLF expansion ?
  or b) a simple working utility to output a byte to the data latch on
      parallel port ???

I'm using RedHat 6 on a Pentium.

Any help apreciated, please email me  - thanks
