I am running RH8 and using only the GNOME GUI.
I have an Epson 760 colour printer attached locally.
During install my printer was configured. It then worked fine for a while.
It has now stopped working. It is definately on and connected to my box.
When trying to print a test page I get the following error:
"There was an error trying to print the test page"
Printing is configured to lpd but I switched to CUPS and that also errors.
I tried to use the command line to troubleshoot using lpc. But I am not getting any useful info back.
lpc would not work initially as it could not find localhost. I specified localhost IP addr 127.0.0.1 in my net config thingy and that works now.
I did not realise that I would need to do this.
Any ideas on how to find out what's wrong?
Please ignore this. I changed to CUPS changed back to LP blah blah. Restarted a few services. Changed the lpd.perms and lpd.conf then changed them back ran lpd reread and then restarted the service in GUI. And about a thousand other things and suddenly it started working. Unfortunately I have no idea what action fixed it! As far as I can tell the config files are all identical to when it stopped working.
But who cares coz it works now!
