Hi all,
i'm using Slackware 9.1 and i wanna try to use my HPOfficeJet G85 using parallel port.
My linux box is used also as samba server so i would like to print from any MS client
using the box as print server.
I recompile the kernel 2.6.6 and attach to parralel print port my HP.
At startup i see:
kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x77 [PCSPP,TRISTATE,EPP]
kernel: parport0: irq 7 detected
kernel: parport0: Printer, Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet G85

So i think it's all right. Then i install LPRNG software and create a queue.
When i check if it's all right after editing printcap file using checkpc -f command, it
gives to me that response:
Warning - HPDeskjet: cannot open lp device '/dev/parport0' - Permission denied

if i change permissione that respose:
Warning - HPDeskjet: cannot open lp device '/dev/parport0' - No such device or address

So when i try to print using a WindowsClient i obtein the same above result:

opening device '/dev/parport0' at 2004-05-13-19:11:32.335 ## A=nobody@nettuno+188 number=188 process=228
cannot open '/dev/parport0' - 'Permission denied', attempt 1, sleeping 10 at 2004-05-13-19:11:32.336 #

or with right permission:
opening device '/dev/parport0' at 2004-05-13-19:22:42.358 ## A=nobody@nettuno+443 number=443 process=468
cannot open '/dev/parport0' - 'No such device or address', attempt 1, sleeping 10 at 2004-05-13-19:22:42.359

I'm going mad =/ please any good advice will be very appreciated
Thanks a lot
