Printing, USB and Centronics...
Here is a somewhat hypotethical question...
I have a PowerMac G3 233 (beige) and a Canon BJC-600 printer. Now
the printer is Centronics (parallel) only, while the Mac has PCI slots and
ADB ports but no Centronics. In MacOS I could buy PowerPrint Plus which is
an ADB to Centronics adapter together with printing drivers.
What I could do in GNU/Linux? I thought of buying a PCI to USB card
and an USB to Centronics adapter, and then printing thru Ghostscript, but I
would like to know beforehands if this has a chance of working. That is,
assuming USB is working in the PowerPC under Linux or shortly will be.
