Lightbulb Current 03/2010 - hplip and the parallel port (pp-build=no)


I had some problems getting my parallel port printer working
again after the latest update.

I noticed that the command "hp-check -r" said:

After a quick google search I found that this option is not
enabled by default anymore, to use it you have to enable it
at compile time... doh

So I recompiled hplip with "--enable-pp-build" and all is good again.
