Re: I got my printer working! canon bj-200 using LPRng, magicfilter and gs
Hi Dan, just one minor point. In re-reading my
e-mail there was one thing I did on my client
machine: because I hand made the printcap on the
client, I did mkdir /var/spool/lpd/canonbj200
then chown -R daemon:lp /var/spool/lpd/canonbj200
Basially make it the same ownership and group as
the other spool directory that were created
during installing lprng.
Good luck! I hope this helps.
