The parallel port driver is now OK, so all that remains is configuring the printer correctly. I would suggest that you go to https://localhost:631/admin/ and add a new printer from scratch. Note down what you do at each staage, and if this still doesn't configure correctly, let us know all the steps you took, and what happened at each step. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
