I have tried the reccomendations that you guys have suggested with no luck.

Please trim your responses and don't top-post, as it makes responding to your messages difficult.

The printcap still has no :rp=lp: line. HP printers aren't picky about that, but other brands sometimes are.

You've also added a filter and kept the multiple printer names. Things like that make more complexity to debug. Wait until you have basic communication working. The exact suggested printcap entry:


Note: one printer name (who needs more than one, really?). rm= and rp= entries. No filter; I think that printer can handle PostScript and PCL.

Put that printcap entry in /etc/printcap, then send a PostScript test to the printer (all one line):

printf "%%\!PS\n/Courier findfont 20 scalefont setfont 72 72 moveto (Test!) show 
showpage\f" | lpr -P admincolor
