/dev/lp0 not configured correctly?
I am dual booting, windows side works perfectly. I have, what should be, a very simple situation. One parallel port, one PC, HP LaserJet series II <- very standard printer. Working with debian sarge.
I absolutely can not get any acknowledgement of any kind from my printer. I'm certain that the hardware is configured correctly. The following, produces nothing:
# echo "test" > /dev/lp0
The ready light doesn't even blink, absolutely nothing. I don't get an error message either.
# lpinfo -v
# lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: LaserJet
device for LaserJet: parallel:/dev/lp0
LaserJet accepting requests since Jan 01 00:00
printer LaserJet is idle. enabled since Jan 01 00:00
Any idea what I can do before I yank debian off my system?
