Hi to everyone. I have a USB printer, Epson EPL-5900L, and I try to install it in Slackware 10.1 with kernel "bare.i" (default recommended kernel) to use with CUPS.
So I installed the Foomatic packages, in the last versions. In order, I installed these packages:
Then I installed printer drivers for Epson printers (epsoneplijs-0.4.0.tgz) and I configured CUPS.
This is the configuration of my printer like appears in CUPS Printers panel:
Epson EPL-5900L Foomatic/epl5900l (recommended)
Description: Epson EPL5900L
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
Device URI: usb:/dev/usb/lp0
If I try to print the test page, the printer seems to be dead. And in CUPS jobs panel, i found this:
MyPrinter-1 Test Page root 15k aborted
If I try to restart the job, I get this error:
Obviously I loaded the module for USB printer support (activating it in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules).
Help me, please! I need to print documents, so I can leave Windows for good.
Thanks in advance,
