Problems printing with CUPS


Hiya,

I'm on slack 10 and I'm trying to set up my printer. It is an Epson Stylus C42UX. I added it using the CUPS web control panel, and it seems to print the CUPS test page correctly. However, when I try 'lpr Epson@localhost test_print' I get the following error:
Code:
Warning - Cannot open file 'Epson@localhost', No such file or directory
Status Information, attempt 1 of 3:
sending job 'gabriel@derepentigny+172' to Epson@localhost
 connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
 cannot open connection to localhost - No such file or directory
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
and accepts connections from this host and from non-privileged (>1023) ports
Waiting 10 seconds before retry
Status Information, attempt 2 of 3:

Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol

Any ideas? What am I doing wrong?

Try lpr-cups instead of lpr. If that works, delete lpr and make lpr a symlink to lpr-cups.
