printer scheduler apparently not repsponding
Hello. I recently tried setting up my LaserJet 4L on my Slackware 9.0 box using the "Foomatic from the User's Point of View" document at linuxprinting dot org (sorry about that, I apparently can't put in url's because I'm new.)
I installed cups, installed the foomatic scripts, and set up my printer on the CUPS server by logging in via (http)://localhost:631
I printed a test page, and it seemed to work great. If I remember correctly, the printer printed on emacs and quite a few other apps... until I restarted. The restart really killed me. Somehow emacs will not print anything, nor lpr. But when I try to use lpr, I get the message
lpr: error - scheduler not responding!
Yet, when I log in to the CUPS printing system via (http):// localhost:631 and print a test page, everything works fine. In fact, I tried using the foomatic "alignmargins" tool, and it printed out an alignment page just fine.
Does anyone know what's going on? Am I missing some sort of link to the scheduler?
Any help or suggestions is appreciated.
