Fri 24/08/07 Cups server error issues MAYBE causing failure to install usb printer
I am a PCBSD newbie but a linux intermediate to expert in some things.
I am running the beta Fri 24 August 2007 cd1 and 2
1 I had confirmed that Cups is running thru the Kde control module
2 I have an USB printer and having read http://forums.pcbsd.org/viewtopic.php?t=9213
I did as suggested and run at root command....chmod 777 /dev/ulpt0.....ditto /dev/unpt0 and
confirmed with ls -l /dev/etc that they were executable
3 Now lets try to find the correct driver
......using localhost:631 ..Epson C61 not listed
using menu...add printer...its listed but has error
ERROR is .....unable to load the requested driver....for C61.
You may note that I have a red border in the printer setup that shows I am in Admin mode
4....When you use menu Printer manager to install... USB had 2 options /dev/unlpt0 and /dev/ulpt0
so I tried both
5 So I rebooted and re-checked cups was running....and re-started it to be sure to be sure heh heh
then in menu....printer manager I found an option to restart Cups....and got error that it could
not find the cups server???
me thinks there is a glitch ...maybe I need to report as a bug? in the cups server.
do you agree?
cheerio and thanks for any feedback
