usb printer install in debian woody
I need some serious help in installing a usb printer under linux. First, usb is working because I am using a usb keyboard. I have installed cups, gimp-print and they seem to be working fine. However the printer doesn't seem to be using a driver.
The printer is a Epson Stylus Photo 785 EPX.
dmesg gives this when I type it in:
eth0: Setting 100mbps full-duplex based on auto-negotiated partner ability 41e1.
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
parport0: irq 7 detected
lp0: using parport0 (polling).
usb.c: registered new driver usblp
usb.c: ignoring set_interface for dev 3, iface 0, alt 0
printer.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 3 if 0 alt 0
printer.c: v0.8:USB Printer Device Class driver
this was after i ran the command:
mknod /dev/usb/usblp c 180 0
Where do i go from here?
I added the printer in cups administration but the correct /dev/usb/usblp0 never shows up. What do I need to do. I am completely lost.
