One thing you need to check is the access rights to the printer device. The device that you want to print to (e.g. /dev/lpt0) needs to belong to the "cups" group (which should exist, along with an unprivileged user named "cups"), and that group needs to have read/write access. If you are using a parallel port printer, add the following to devfs.conf(5) and reboot, or use chown/chmod to correctly set the values: # Give cups printer access own lpt0 root:cups perm lpt0 0660 If you are using for instance a USB printer, you need to add the following to your ruleset in devfs.rules(5)and reboot, or use chown/chmod to correctly set the values: add path 'ulpt*' mode 0660 group cups HTH, Roland -- R.F.Smith http://www.xs4all.nl/~rsmith/ [plain text _non-HTML_ PGP/GnuPG encrypted/signed email much appreciated] pgp: 1A2B 477F 9970 BA3C 2914 B7CE 1277 EFB0 C321 A725 (KeyID: C321A725)
