Macondo, I followed your indications for the Print setup "al pie de la letra", and after installing both printers:

HPLaserjet 4L
HPPSC 1200

I asked them for the test page. No way, no failure message, NADA!
Where should I look for the culprit?
I have read all TFM and HowTos

The rest of your excellent tutorial deserves a big "BRAVO"!.
For instance, this is the first time I can chat from install (xchat) in less than a minute, without hassles!

I use a beat-up HP printer and it works, don't know much about others, it's not my forté, maybe in some of forums of those printers you might find some answers. Have you tried the #debian channel in the Freenode server? Sorry i'm not of some help. =(

Printing woes : Part xxx

'morning, Macondo:
Looked like I had put an end to my problems with print setup, but it was wishful thinking.
To make it short, and after tinkering in Sarge, I followed your original advice and I did RTFM !!

http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/de...ference.en.pdf

and found my relief in # 3.6.2 : CUPS. After getting it to work in Sarge, I proceed to d/l and install Sid, kernel 2.6.11-1-k7, Gnome 2.10, and installed printers "secundum Guide", and that was all !

You can also make dash your user shell with chsh. That will save some more ram, but I advice you then to use bash in [xae]term/rxvt. For example: "aterm -e bash". Dash is no good interactive shell.

Does this have a significant improvment on boot time?

Debian Configuration Post-Install

Dear Macondo,

I have read your "Debian Configuration Post-Install" and thought it might be useful to others also. So, I have collected them into one pdf file.
I would like to have your permission to circulate the file to the members of my Linux -users-group.

Regards,

Sorry for the late answer, but i've been away due to a car accident.

No need to ask for my permission, this thread belongs to everybody who reads it and has contributed to it. Please feel free to reproduce, post, etc, just make sure this site gets mentioned.
