parallel port with cups (LPT)

Posted 10-16-2012 at 05:07 AM by ted_chou12

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:
Code:
lsmod | grep par
if not:
Code:
parport_pc 22292 1
parport 29012 2 parport_pc,lp
Then do:
Code:
modprobe lp
Make sure you add this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, to ensure the code runs everytime during boot.
Now check again:
Code:
lsmod | grep par
"lp" should now already be displayed....
