CANON BJC-240 Refuses to print anything
Trying to install Canon BJC-240 Printer, on parallel port (dev/lp0) without success. Currently running RedHat, but previously ran OK on Corel Linux.
I prefer KDE for GUI.
I've been running various versions of Linux for 3 years now, mostly as a file server. That tends to mean the box just sits in the corner and I don't fiddle much - which means I still rate myself a newbie. So i could be doing something daft!
The printer installs OK. (Have tried installing as BJ200, BJC600 both of which are 'listed' drivers. And also as a plain text only.)
All 'install' OK but then point blank refuse to communicate in any shape or form - test pages (all of them!) error with following message:
"A print error occurred. Error message received from system
/usr/bin/lpr -P 'BJC-240' '-#1'
/root/.kde/tmp-Linux-Server/kdeprint_u68MQdV' execution failed with message.
Get_local_host hostname 'Linux-Server' bad
