hello.. I am using FreeBSD as my desktop. I'm looking for help to print as a user from KDE. I can generate a test print from Apsfilter just fine in the shell using the setup script.
I think I either do not have a spooler set up right, or a permission perhaps. I also don't really know what I should select for the printer in KDE or if there should be a command line entry. I did have the sample lp setup in my printcap file at one point, currently that is commented out. I'm Running: FreeBSD â Current (5.1) Printer Canon BJC-610 Parallel /dev/lp0 LPD on start up Ghostscript-gnu As SU checking for the lpt: freebie# dmesg | grep lpt lpt0: <Printer> on ppbus0 lpt0: Interrupt-driven port freebie# ls -l /dev/lpt0 crw------- 1 root wheel 16, 0 Oct 29 09:09 /dev/lpt0 From Apsfilter setup: Checking permissions of /usr/local/share/apsfilter found dir owner=root, ok! found dir group=wheel, ok! changing permissions of /usr/local/share/apsfilter... done. Now we are checking file permissions in spooldir Your line printer scheduler's spooldir seems to be: /var/spool/lpd drwxrwxrwx 2 root daemon 512 Oct 17 01:25 /var/spool/lpd The Owner of your spooldir seems to be: root The Group of your spooldir seems to be: daemon First time through on test print returns a printer busy and resets printer Second time through works fine I reset printers as suggested in setup From KDE 3.1.4 using OpenOffice â Writer, from open document selected âGeneric Printer.â Windows fly by but nothing happens. As I understand it, generic printer should be lpd and should be captured by Apsfilter. using Kmail, selected print through external program, ps (only possible selection: postscript printer, reports idle, accepting jobs), print command line empty. Reports generating print file, then: A print error occured. Error message received from system: Empty print command. Using Kmail, selecting Generic LPD print system, no device, no option to print Using Kmail, cannot select LPR/LPRng (port not installed at this time, will not compile on 5.1) â not an Apsfilter issue obviously. Using KDE Control Center, peripherals, printer Print Through External Program, PS_printer (only device available) Unable to send, empty print command Any help or config file to check would be greatly appreciated. -- Regards, MIKE...
