Acrobat reader does not print in Slackware 9.1 with CUPS


Hello:

I have set up my Epson LQ-1070+ 24-pin DMP using CUPS on my system running on Slackware 9.1. Test printing is ok. I am able to print from GEdit.

But when I try to print from Acrobat Reader, I get the following error message:

Status Information, attempt 1 of 3:
sending job 'anand@Megh+245' to lp0@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

What is to be done? Please help.

Thanks for your help.

Problem solved.

Hello:

I solved the problem as follows:

Removed the printer in CUPS.
Removed both cups and lprng packages.
Installed only CUPS package.
Installed the printer again through web interface of CUPS.

Now Acrobat reader is printing properly.
