    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'
    execution failed with message.

    Get_local_host hostname 'Linux-Server' bad
