printing in linux driving me insane
I have a lexmark z23 printer that just cannot be installed. I have Mandrake 8.0, and I got the drivers for it from the disks. I installed the drivers, and it seemed that it was fine; the printcap file showed my printer with data below. Yet when I entered the lpr command- "lpr -Plexmarkz33 myfile" the following error message occured : "could not print file: server-error-service unavailable." I had also checked in linuxconf, clicked periphials, and printers, and an error message came up saying that it couldn't locate the lpd command in /usr/sbin. Does printing in Mandrake linux require both LPRng and lpd? And what does the lpr error mean? THanks alot.
