Thank you for the help, thus far no joy!
Results from the suggested commands:
$ whereis lpd
# ps -aux |grep lpd
Bad syntax, perhaps a bogus'-'
root 218 0.0 0.1 1212 548 ? S May01 0:00 [lpd]
matthew 3565 0.0 0.1 1112 444 pts/0 S 12:02 0:00 grep lpd
It looks to be running, however, I issued the restart command:
storm:/home/matthew# /etc/init.d/lpd restart
Stopping printer spooler: lpd not running.
Starting printer spooler: lpr.
#man lpc -t |lpr
lpr: connect: Connection refused
jobs queued, but cannot start daemon
# man lpc |lpr
same return as above, also as normal user. This command sequence used to work, untill yesterday when this fun began.
Triying to print from inside an app. (Netscape) does not result in output to the printer.
Is it possible to use apt to reinstall the stuff that seems broken? TIA, Matt.
