I wrote awhile back about some problems with my epson. Turned out, like
someone suggested, that I hadn't compiled parallel printing support into
the kernel, stupid me :).
Anyway, I'm stumped again. According to /proc/parport/0, the printer is
on "lp". At startup I see something to the order of "lp0: using parport0
(polling)". Because of this I assumed the printer was on /dev/lp0 and
modified the printcap to that effect. However I kept getting a message
that the printer does not exist. I changed the printcap to /dev/lp and
now my print stuff goes to lala land. Nothing happens, the application
thinks that it's been printed and nothing turns up in the spool. Where,
exactly, is my printer?
