I was looking in the internet a solution for my "printer problem"
but I still did not find it.
I print nothing even I try directly to the printer port
cat /etc/hosts >/dev/lp0
The printer does nothing !!!
Parallel support an PC-Style are compiled as modules in my kernel
(Linux Red Hat 7, kernel 2.2.16).
If I load the modules with the insmod command:
I get the follwing messages (with the dmesg command):
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [SPP,EPP,ECPEPP]
parport0: Printer, Lexmark Z42
lp0: using parport0 (polling)
(Note. If I try directly with the "printtool" or "lpr" commands,
this modules automatically load but I get the following error:
parport0: Unknown Device
lp0: using parport0 (polling) )
After loading the modules with "insmod", I try to print again ......
nothing new !! it does not print anything !! and there are no error
May irq be the problem?
# cat /proc/parport/0/irq
I force in the /etc/modules.conf to use irq=7 (echo "7"
>/porc/parport/0/irq) and several io addresses but nothing changed !!!
I can print with no problems in Windows .... some people have told
me this printer is only for Windows but I can't believe it !!
Please, if you don't mind help me !!!!!
Thank you very much and Best Regards.
