Dear ALL,
I am an older newbie trying to set up an old HP Office Jet R60 on my office computer running
FreeBSD 6.2 Stable with the Generic kernel. I followed excellent how to by Daniel Steinbrook (I am trying to use HPLIP since the printer is listed as a fully functional even Linux printing is recommending HPLIP for this printer) except the part about customizing kernel since my printer has a parallel port(I assume that part was relevant only for USB printers so I left kernel GENERIC). Unfortunately when I run hp-setup utility the printer is not detected. However printer is detected by OS as you can see from
[root@ ~]# dmesg

Running as a root user I see that hp-setup utility expect to find parallel port device

I do not have /dev/parport0 in /dev/  as you can see

so I tried manually to specify the device not as /dev/ppc0 (but ppc0 is also not in /dev also I do not have /dev/ppc0) I also tried /dev/lpt0 as a device node since I can get printer reacting on lptest > /dev/lpt0. Unfortunately it prints only one line of codes instead of whole page. I was not playing enough with LP in hope of being able to do HPLIP

Could anybody tell me what am I doing so wrong and give me some kind of directions? Sorry for this simple question.

I tried to use CUPS in order to use Gutenprint drivers but it seems to me that cups expects printer to be detected as USB or network printer. ( I am messing up something big time with the parallel ports). All I have done was from the root account (I will set permissions latter). My computer is set up to run as a free standing Desktop so the host name is something generic.
