Hi, I recently installed Slackware 9.1 with kernel version 2.4.22. I am using CUPS for my spooling software and setup was a snap. My HP LaserJet 4L is well supported.
Using the CUPS web interface (http://localhost:636/admin
), I added my HP printer and called it laserjet. Setup was simple and I can print a test page, but I cannot print anything else. I am not sure why this is and I have tried both lpr
. Can someone help me troubleshoot this problem?
I am not sure how to begin looking into this, but here is /etc/printcap:
# This file was automatically generated by cupsd(8) from the
# /etc/cups/printers.conf file. All changes to this file
# will be lost.

I know that Slackware uses LPRng as the default spooler and I still have this installed. From what I have gathered LPRng and CUPS do not cooperate with one another. Maybe the problem is related to this. Again, I am not completely sure.
Thanks in advance for the help.
