CUPS & USB espon printer


hi im trying to get printer to work. im using CUPS.

i dont have lpring installed, and the printer works on my Win part.

printer: EPSON CX6600

startup message:

Code:
andlers:

direct usb:/dev/usb/lp11
direct usb:/dev/usb/lp12
direct usb:/dev/usb/lp13
direct usb:/dev/usb/lp14
direct usb:/dev/usb/lp15
the first time i installed the printer their wasnt the exact driver so i tried other similar printer but no luck. So i got the correct driver off espon and installed it no problem.

i tried again using the web interface, trying different locations from the lpinfo cmd. no luck, the printer just sits their when i try and print the test page, i also tried using the Kprint with CUPS but it would do anthing.

im pretty sure usb is working by the output i posted.

thanks

I do not understand any of the output but have you got the cups daemon running?
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups must be executable so that it runs on bootup and fires up the cups daemon (cupsd). Have you got a process monitor running? Look for cupsd. Or type cupsd as root in a terminal and see what happens.

Try http://localhost:631/ (in any browser) and click Do Administration Tasks, need to login as root and passwd, then do what it says.
Also need to have cups started, if your printer needs cups.

Yup cups is running, i just checked the bootup scripts, and:

root@HELIX:~# ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3942 2005-01-05 02:13 /etc/rc.d/rc.cups*

root@HELIX:~# /etc/rc.d/rc.cups status
cups: scheduler is running.

i then ran the command:

root@HELIX:~# cupsd
cupsd: Child exited with status 98!

"..tried again using the web interface..."

Their is lots of data in the file, but no errors jump out at me, just adding and deleting printer information.
