Cups Config Problem


Hi all!! I got a printer HP 710C and I've installed CUPS correctly (means starts) on my Slack 9.0/2.4.21
I went to linuxprinting.org and downloaded the file .ppd for my printer and copied it into /usr/share/cups/model
I've downloaded also foomatic-filters.tar.gz, complied and copied foomatic-rip into /usr/lib/cups/filter/
Opening with browser http://localhost:631 there is the config interface and here the problems starts:

- In the section model/driver there isn't my printer...

- Trying to print a test page I recive the msg: The connection was refused when attempting to connecting to contact thor:631
Some1 could help me please??
TnxVM

After you copied the ppd file to the /usr/share/cups/model folder. You need to restart cups. Go to /etc/rc.d
and ./rc.cups stop ./rc.cups start after that.

If you can't install your printer ppd, how did you get to do the test print. You can edit the /etc/cups/cups.conf to increase the logging level. This will help you to debug what is going on. As mention above. you need to restart cups after you meddle with the cups.conf to get the changes going.

Tnx VM!!
I've restarted cups correctly during the configuration!!
I printed the test page configuring as a hp printer nearest to mine that was in the list...
I think maybe the problem is in here as show by dmesg:

parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
parport0: irq 7 detected
lp0: using parport0 (polling).

Well, I think parallel port is correct but should detect a HP 710C...
Some1 could help please??

It's not a nice thing doing a thread by myself

I got always the same problem with my hp710c
now dmesg shows:

dmesg:

parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
parport0: irq 7 detected
parport0: faking semi-colon
parport0: Printer, HEWLETT-PACKARD DESKJET 710C
lp0: using parport0 (polling).

Is it so hard to config this printer??
Some1 could help me please??
TnxVM
