Angry Epson T11 printer problem


Hi all,
I have installed CentOS 5.5 to prepare for my RHEL certification.
I have a Epson T11 printer. It shows Epson T11 ready when I try to print something. But it never prints. I tried lpq also. But no success.
The following is the error I get.

[root@unknown0019d1b5e07a ~]# lpr /root/Desktop/test
lpr: Error - no default destination available.

What is wrong?
Some one help please.

Well, as the error message indicates, it can't find your printer because no default has been set for it.

Read the lpr man page and figure out how to set the default, and/or how direct the command to use your printer.

Thanx David the H.
But when I say
[root@unknown0019d1b5e07a ~]# lpr -P Stylus_T11 /root/Desktop/test
Nothing happens.
When I do a lpq is says

[root@unknown0019d1b5e07a ~]# lpq
lpq: error - no default destination available.

[root@unknown0019d1b5e07a ~]# lpstat -p
printer Stylus_T11 is idle. enabled since Mon 16 Aug 2010 12:38:40 AM IST

[root@unknown0019d1b5e07a ~]# lpq -P Stylus_T11
Stylus_T11 is ready
no entries.

What is wrong here?
Please help.

Well, I can't say then. You're the one trying for certification, so shouldn't you be trying to figure it out for yourself?

I'd start by double-checking the printer permissions and the groups your user belongs to.
