Installing printer on Slack 9.0


Hello guys...i need help on how to install a printer on Slack 9.0 box. I've already tried using the KDE Printing Manager to setup my printer, but it didn't work. I really need help here because i need to print some document.

My printer is Epson LX-800 (it's an old Dot Matrix printer).

and one more thing...i use OpenOffice.org 1.1 to create my document so can my printer works on printing OpenOffice document...that's all

Thanks

drivers were listed eh?

restart the print daemon

something like

/sbin/service lpd restart

I've got RH
so the actual command may vary

LPRng
