Someone wrote an article about the subject on the Slackware Documentation Project:
Cheers. It was never a high priority for me as it is a secondary printer, so I just never got round to it, and I scan rarely. The information on the slackware docs helped loads though, and now everything is working.
One thing, the printer wouldn't work properly. I had to tell it to change the location of the printer from lpd://<hostname>/binary_p1 to ldp://<ip address>/binary_p1. Not a big deal though.
