Can't print in Suse 8.2
I decided to take an old Canon BJ200 parallel printer out of the closet and hook it up directly to this system. However, using YaSt it did not autodetect it so I configured manually.
There is a connection and the com test works but after picking the make and model ... no printing.
The test print does not work.

Although when I stop the test the printer does react but doesn't print.

I used kwrite and sent a job out. I opened the queue and notcied the job processing then disappears ... like the page was printed.

The printer is shown as connected to /dev/lp0

Turns out the the canon bj200 is not supported as per the suse hadware database. I plugged in a hp940c, started suse and it gave me a new hardware found. I installed it from there and it works.

I'm using suse 8.0 but have not been successful in setting up my printer via IP. Can anyone help? JUST A NEW GUY TRYING TO SLOWLY LEAVE WINDOW$.

I don't want to discourage you but I tried this and decided on a local printer for now.

Although I felt I was close to making it work I realized that I need to learn more before attempting to go further.
