    setting up a printer without any GUI


    guys,

    Im trying to configure a usb printer thru Linux i knw its just simple but heres my situation.
    My team wants to do it manually without using any GUI tool since we will just be using the console.
    We build the linux kernel 2.6.6 and we will use this kernel to embed to a x86 CPU driven device thats why we dont need GUI and this device is connected to a USB printer. We have the device working in Suse Linux and also its drivers but i have used the UI tool in setting up the printer.

    I need help in:
    a) How to do this in a console mode given only the linux kernel compiled.
    b) Do you have some website link to recommend for doing this?
    c) Where do i Start?

    thanks

    where do I start?


    man lpadmin


    this should provide you with some insightful information.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
