    Getting my Printer working?


    How should I proceed to get my printer working? I Downloaded the most recent cups, and configured it. I downloaded a driver for my spacific Printer. installed them. Every time I try to print something I get this:

    A print error occurred. Error message received from system:

    cupsdoprint -P 'Samsung' -J 'hb01pl.txt' -H 'localhost:631' -U 'all' -o ' copies=1 multiple-document-handling=separate-documents-collated-copies orientation-requested=3' '/tmp/kde-nick/kdeprint_webHzP1W' : execution failed with message:
    client-error-not-possible

    I cant even print a test print from cups.
    I am Running Slack 10, Samsung ML-1210 Printer. Linuxprinting.org says his printer works perfectly with linux.
    Thanks for any advice.

    slack 10 has the paraelle port commented out by default.
    to enable it uncommented the parallel port settings on rc.modules rebooted

    give it a restart and try again.

    That's intriguing. I guess people don't use parallel as much as they used to, but I wouldn't think it much of a resources burden. Is there another reason it's commented out?

    hey if you want to set cups up the easy way just goto 127.0.0.1:631
    when it askes for your username use
    Code:
    root
    and password use
    Code:
    root passwd
    and this will be the CUPS web gui

    What part do I uncomment in rc.modules?


    #### PC parallel port support ###
    #if cat /proc/ksyms | grep "\[parport_pc\]" 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null ; then
    # echo "parport0 is built-in, not loading module" > /dev/null
    #else
    # if [ -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/misc/parport_pc.o \
    # -o -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/misc/parport_pc.o.gz \
    # -o -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/kernel/drivers/parport/parport_pc.o \
    # -o -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/kernel/drivers/parport/parport_pc.o.gz ]; then
    # # Generic setup example:
    # /sbin/modprobe parport_pc
    # # Hardware specific setup example (required for PLIP and better
    # # performance in general):
    # #/sbin/modprobe parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7
    # fi
    #fi

    #### Parallel printer support ###
    #if cat /proc/ksyms | grep "\[lp\]" 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null ; then
    # echo "lp support built-in, not loading module" > /dev/null
    #else
    # if [ -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/misc/lp.o \
    # -o -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/misc/lp.o.gz \
    # -o -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/kernel/drivers/char/lp.o \
    # -o -r /lib/modules/$RELEASE/kernel/drivers/char/lp.o.gz ]; then
    # /sbin/modprobe lp
    # fi
    #fi

    ### Parallel port IP ###
    #/sbin/modprobe plip

    I tried that using the ip and 631 and now the printer lights blink but nothing prints?
