Re: Parallel Printer Port Problem
I don't really understand why, but I was able to narrow it down to lpr as the culprit (with several peoples help). So, after reinstalling lprng several times, I decided to try lpr. LPR WORKS! I don't know what the difference is, but it's enough. I reinstalled magicfilter after and I'm printing in full color from all my applications.
Phew! That's one off my list.
thanks again for all your help...I hope I can return the favor.
