Re: [Q] How to Print in DEBIAN
Even though it says that it has HP 500C emulation, this just means that it
will emulate the printer once it has been sucessfully configured by the
operating system. This printer uses a Host based Windows printing system. The
printer does not function under any operating systems/environments than Windows
3.x and Windows 95. I've been testing it under DOS and NT 4.0. It does not
work under either of these.
The printer requires a device driver in order to function. You will see the
same effect if you boot under DOS and try to copy a file to the LPT port.
Nothing will be printed on the printer.
