Add LaserJet Printer support to FriendlyARM Mini6410


Hello,

I'm working on a project where I have to send print commands to a USB printer from a Mini6410 ARM11. I only have to print text.

1. Can any one suggest me which steps I have to follow?

2. Which Linux Kernel driver I want to enable?

3. Should I need to install CPUS also? Which version is suitable for my board?

The board running on Linux Kernel-2.6.38 with QtEmbedded-4.7.0 install on it.

The easiest would be to use the usblp kernel module but do not know if it is included. If so you can write to /dev/usblp0 as a serial data stream.
