mandrake 10 download printer setup


Mandrake 10 seems to be the best ever, but as with most mandy releases it introduced a couple of brand new problems. My printers cannot be set up in mdk10 download edition. I don't think that I am doing anything wrong. I have used printers in 7..2, 7.4, 8.1, 9.1, and 9.2. Anyone else having problems? mdk bug, user screwup, or typical .0 problems? HELP, HELP, NELP, AND HELP. Please don't forget the nelp.

Thanx

No error message. When machine is turned on and when setup tries to detect printer, it (the printer) hic-cups (normal for this printer). Setup appears to go well, but test page never prints. I have a 2nd parallel port for lexmark printer. Have tried each of them at lpt0, lpt1, and lpt2 to no avail. This is not normal. Of course, this is not the only problem I have with Mandy10, but it is the only one I can't get a handle on.

-mascdmanJust 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.

omni-0.9.1-12mdk was not installed. Popped that in and she now works fine. Thanks
