OfficeJet G85, CUPS Web based Admin test print works, lpr/lp dose not. ptal-print OK.
HP OfficeJet G85 print drivers are installed and CUPS web based admin allows me to add a printer, the button "print test page" in the CUPS web based admin is able to print a page. lpr/lp can not connect to printer, thus can not print.
Problem In detail:
I run Slackware 10.0 with the default kernel (2.4.26). I am trying to get my HP OfficeJet G85 print to work with it. Searching around on the Internet led me to a few things, one the HP linux drivers (hpinkjet (http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/)), but after installing that I quickly found at that I need the OfficeJet Drivers and I had the InkJet Drivers. So I went to: http://hpoj.sourceforge.net (hpoj (HP OfficeJet Driver)) and compiled and installed that...
After I installed that driver I ran:
Which found and set up up my printer at: /dev/usb/lp0
I than ran:
which gave me:
Moving on I restarted CUPS with: /etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart
and than went to localhost:631 with my web browser and configure CUPS with my printer. I added the printer with the options that the README file hpoj told me to do and named it OJG85. And than I click print test page. Which than printed out a test page correctly. I though I was set.
So I went into firefox and tried to print out a page, that didn't work, the printer never printed any thing. So I saved it to a PostScript file and than tried to print it out with the lpr command my self which gave me the error:

Hi, read this thread; http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...15#post1170315
Thank you very much. The sim links were the problem. I did a search and didnt see that thread, sorry about posting it again....
First time I have used cups, so I did not know this.
Thanks again for the help!
