Re: Print Drivers
One thing I've been banging my head over is how do you load your printer's
I just did a Sarge install, and everything is pretty much working exactly
as I could have hoped. With the exception of the printer. I don't know
if I forgo to turn it on during the install, or if it just doesn't cover
Any suggestions as to how I can get my printer working?
Thanks in advance!
Setting up is not part of the install.
Further more, it's a black art.
It depends on a lot of things: is it a locally attached printer, or a
network printer? Is it USB, or serial, or LPT? Is it a real printer, or
a "win-printer" (in which case, Good Luck, Buddy; you'll need it)?
Assuming it's a printer that will work with Linux, probably the easiest
way is to use CUPS (although there are other methods).
apt-get install cupsys-client cupsys-bsd
Then use your web browser to go to "localhost:631" and you'll find a GUI
for setting up your printer. You may also need to install some other
packages, such as foomatic-filters-ppds and cupsys-driver-gimpprint, but
I'm not sure what all you'll need; as I said, it's a black art.
