Printer help


Hi guys

Well i just picked up an epson sylus c68 printer........i was trying to configure this printer to work with slackware 11 but i really dont know where to start to get this thing working. i did a google search and in the instructions it said i had to make sure that lpd printer is disable, so i did /sbin/service lpd stop as root but it came back saying no directory........i then did /sbin/service cups start as root and i got the same message saying no directory or file of this type......can i get some help with setting this up.

Does Slackware not have a GUI printer setup? If you can't find that, then open a browser and type "localhost:631" (without the quotes) This will bring up a CUPS setup page
