Look at the past months mail archive for discussion on this.

I have a Brother HL-10V worling fine using magicfilter.  Could only
get a great test page out of apsfilter. :(

Works for every program I have tried.

One other thought.  Have you compiled the kernel correctly?  A lot of
parport options there.  Also have you included the parport options in
the appends= in lilo.conf?  ie:
append  = "lp=parport0 parport=0x378,none"

( 'none' means don't ise an IRQ, which isn't required for the printer)

:-) HTH, YMMV, HAND :-)

There can never be a computer language in which you cannot write a
bad program.
