Epson stylus color 740 Printer
 
At the begining localhost:631 would refuse me,so I started looking around and the advice I found was to uninstall cups and all its files and folders so that I did.I reinstalled cups and gimp-print and tried again using kde's wizard and my printer is there [usb] the driver I have used before is there,looks good,but still will not print,I looked for cups in dmesg and I don't see it starting.What should I try next,thanks david

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start

Browse to http://localhost:631, login with root password
Add a printer class, add a printer then choose epson gimp driver for color 740

install cups package so.

[edit]
just an idea : have you a file named rc.cups.new in /etc/rc.d directory ?

comprookie2000 07-22-2004 04:34 PM

O.K thanks
No just the /ect/rc.d/rc.cups

comprookie2000 07-22-2004 04:52 PM

Do you know where I can find it?

keefaz 07-22-2004 04:57 PM

You have it (rc.cups) so try to do the steps I mentioned and see if it works...

comprookie2000 07-22-2004 05:01 PM

Same thing,wonder why It won't show up,I'm lost!
I right clicked on the file in konqurer and I can view the permissions?

keefaz 07-22-2004 05:03 PM

No pages at http://localhost:631 ?

comprookie2000 07-22-2004 05:07 PM

I go throught the whole setup,seems ok to me,but I can't start cups same thing no /ect/rc.d/rc.cups when I try to start it,I'm new at this so bear with me,thanks again keefaz

It is simple, on a terminal, type :

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start


[edit]
Hey ;) my mistake (stupid typo error), it was /etc directory not /ect of course

Yes, it was wrong directory name, see my edit above
