    cannot add a printer to the cups system. lpadmin cmd fails


    Hello

    I try to add a printer to my Slack 10 system

    I want to use cups an samba to print from some win xp stations to a printer connected to lp0 on my Slack box.

    the command I issue is:

    lpadmin -p rawqueue -v parallel:/dev/lp0 -E

    this return an error: "... client_not_poosible"

    the lpinfo -v shows no parallel device. Only serial, usb ...

    Any hint?

    if cups is running, try going to
    Code:
    http://localhost:631
    that's CUPS's webserver for the web based admin of cups printers.

    That's howe i added my printer on my gentoo box.
