I am trying to get a Samsung ML5000a printer to work on my FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p3 box. The Machine has a EPIA Mini-ITX board which has *no* parallel port.
The printer is connected to /dev/unlpt0 crw-rw---- 1 root cups 0, 61 May 26 17:18 /dev/unlpt0 /var/cache/cups is writable by the cups group: drwxrwxr-x 2 root cups 512 Apr 3 21:43 cups If I issue 'echo test > /dev/unlpt0' I get bash: /dev/unlpt0: Device busy
Update: Changing the URI of the printer in printers.conf from usb:/dev/unlpt0 to file:/dev/unlpt0 did not help. The effect is, that cups does not start anymore and i get Unable to open output file "file:/dev/unlpt0" - Device busy. in /var/log/cups/error_log I'm at a loss :( rgds andreas _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
