Connecting a USB printer to NSLU2

Hi there,

I have nearly got my Debianslug to do exactly what I want it to do.
There's only one small thing which I can't get working so far. I am not
able to connect my Epson Stylus C66 printer to it via USB.

I have followed the usual instructions of installing such a printer by
firstly installing CUPS, then installing the driver (gutenprint for my
printer as advised by the webpage). The add printer menu on my local
CUPS webinterface detects that I have a printer attached via USB and
gutenprint allows me to select the new driver for it. After it is added,
I can not print test pages or even print a simple text file eg. "lpr
text.txt". Looking in CUPS jobs list, I can see the job was sent but it
eventually says "stopped".

I had a look at this webpage which seems to require more to be done to
add a USB printer. I haven't done this as I was confused as to whether
it applied to me. Also, I could find a match of kernel version on the
link it gives.


Would anyone know how to get a USB printer connected to debianslug and
printing first of all?

Thanking you in advance.
