ok, so i'm running fedora core 2. the kernal number is 2.6.8-1.521. the printer i'm trying to connect to is a HP LaserJet 5si
i'm trying to connect to my printer at work, which is setup as an ip printer. i've tried adding it in the printer configuration using networked cups (ipp) as the queue type. i put in the rest of the information (printer manufactor and model number). however, no test page ever came out of the printer. this is what was in the log file:
I [17/Nov/2004:15:09:24 -0700] Adding start banner page "none" to job 1.
I [17/Nov/2004:15:09:24 -0700] Adding end banner page "none" to job 1.
I [17/Nov/2004:15:09:24 -0700] Job 1 queued on 'work' by 'root'.
I [17/Nov/2004:15:09:24 -0700] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstops (PID 16187) for job 1.
I [17/Nov/2004:15:09:24 -0700] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip (PID 16188) for job 1.
I [17/Nov/2004:15:09:24 -0700] Started backend /usr/lib/cups/backend/ipp (PID 16189) for job 1.
when i look back in the printer configuration, the following shows up as the description of my newly added printer:
Network hot '18.104.22.168' is busy; wil retry 30 seconds...INFO: Connecting to 22.214.171.124 on port 631...
i've never setup a networked printer in linux before, so i really don't know what to do about this. any help would be fantastic. thanks.
when i type lpinfo -v , and get a message saying bash: lpinfo: command not found. however, i have a man page about this command, so i figure that it must be there somewhere. ideas? btw, please excuse my -ness.
thanks. i finally got the command to work. here's the ouput (although i'm quite sure what this means):
on a side note: how do i make it so that i can just type lpinfo -v and not have to give the whole path?
