(Ref: Linksys WPS54GU2 Wireless printserver on SuSE 9.0 OS)
Thank you again for your help. I apologize for taking so long to respond.
I followed your instruction on how to set the printer on localhost:631 and unfortunately it did not print.
However your instructions were very helpful and I got the terms straitened out:
“Description and location (the values you put here are for your information only, they don't affect the printer at all).”
“From the Device drop down, select "LPD/LPR Host or Printer".”
“print queue as P1 or P2”
Now knowing some of the terminology I went back to YaST and started the printer installation and finally I got my Wireless Linksys WPS55GU2 printserver working.
I must say that for me it was a major achievement especially that I have been working on this problem for weeks. And I must confess that I was ready to dump SuSE in favor of Fedora. I had already downloaded the DVD ISO files from Red Hat.
I would like to share my experience with the forum:
I stated YaST from the start icon on the lower left screen, typed the root password.
Clicked on the Hardware icon and selected the Printer icon:
Configure Printer (EPSON Stylus CX5400)
Print via LPD_Style Network Server
Hostname of printer: 192.168.2.10
Name of remote queue: P2
(Note, it is P2 because the printer is connected to the printer server USB port and the printserver has two ports; a parallel and an USB)
Test remote LPD access, it responded: The printer is accessible.
Name of printing: StylusCX5400
Description: EPSON Stylus CX5400 Color Printer/Copier/Fax
Location: USB printer on Linksys WPS55GU2 printserver
Manufacturer and model of the printer:
EPSON - - > Stylus C80
(Note CX5400 was not available on the list of EPSON printer models)
(Note: It defaulted to Epson Stylus C80 Foomatic/gimp/print (recommended) but it did not work)
So I selected the EPSON Stylus C80 CUPS+Gimp-Print v4.2.5 (stp/escp2-C80.ppd.gz)
And I clicked to test printer for text and then for graphics.
It worked for both tests and I was as happy as a kid on a candy store.
And this is how the printer edit configuration looks like:
Already installed printers and queues:
