Mandrake 10 Download and Printers


I just did a clean install of Mandrake 10 download. I cannot set up my printer. The printer is an
Epson LQ 1050. Previous versions of Mandrake(Power Pack and Download versions) back to 7.2 have all worked flawlessly. Oddly enough, Mandrake 10 is the first distro to list the LQ 1050 in its list of drivers. Previously I have used the drivers for the LQ 850. My box is pretty ordinary, MSI board, AMD XP-24 proc, 512 MB DDR memory, 64 MB Nvidia, onboard sound, added parallel port for sometime used Lexmark printer. Is there something really simple that I am missing or what!!??

Just guessing, but do you have the omni-0.9.1-12mdk RPM installed? I notice that it has a lot of printer configuration files, especially /usr/share/cups/model/omni/Epson/Epson-Epson_LQ_1050-omni-cups.ppd.gz.

Very good guess. Was not installed. Popped it in and printer setup worked like a charm. Don't know how the folks at Mandrake let this one out without having that as part of the normal install. Thanks.
