Hi, I am tired of USB port so I went ahead and tried to use a parallel port to connect my printer:
First check if the lp mod is added:
parport_pc 22292 1
parport 29012 2 parport_pc,lp
Make sure you add this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, to ensure the code runs everytime during boot.
Now check again:
"lp" should now already be displayed....
