Hi

I have installed cups on my slack 9.1 system.

The cups daemon is running no problems.

I added my printer (and Epson Stylus Color 760) with :

/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p Epson -m stcolor.ppd -v parallel:/dev/par0 -E

and this went fine.

lpc / status reports:

Epson: printer is on device 'parallel' speed -1 queuing is enabled printing is enabled 1 entries
daemon present

I can even run lpr <file> and it will add it to the print queue, as lpq reports :

Rank Pri Owner Job Files Total Size active 50 mint 3 (stdin) 2048 bytes

This happens with both user and root.

Have I missed something, any ideas what could be wrong?

A bike ride might help. Couldn't hurt.
