When I installed cups, right at the end of the installation process, there was a notice instructing that you have to create a devfs.rules file in /etc with the above contained within. Also, there has to be this entry in the rc.conf file: devfs_system_ruleset="system" It seems to me that there was another instruction, but I can't remember what it was. I don't want to lead you down the proverbial path here, but I followed those instructions, installed both of my printers with ppd files, and everything went swimmingly. Previous to that I could never get the printers to work. I would try to print a test page and get a "permission denied" message, or some such thing. I may have saved the instructions from the installation process. I'll look for them, and if I find the whole thing I'll post it here. --Rem _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
