Couple of problems here... ;)
Using Woody 3.0r0 here...
First Problem USB Printing using CUPS
I have a HOWTO which tells me how to set up CUPS with a parallel port printer
but I have a USB printer. In the CUPS web setup I can add a printer but when
I try to print the test page I get the following error:
Unable to open USB port device file "/dev/usb/lp0": No such device
How do I tell which port device to use? Also can anyone point me to a HOWTO
for setting up CUPS and a USB device The error message pops up whenever I
change the USB Printer #<Whatever>
/var/log/dmesg seems to indicate that the USB ports and the things that are
connected to it are detected at boot. I have a Microsoft Steering wheel as
well as my printer. I am using a stock bf24 kernel from the install disc.
2nd Problem fonts...
Installed KDE 3.1.4 from their Debian repository at download.kde.org. When I
used the Font Installer to install new Truetype fonts from WinXP into
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ttf. The program ran all the necessary programs to
generate the caches.
When I come to set up desktop fonts the fonts work fine as the root user but
when I use a standard user the fonts all look like squares. I'm not sure
wether it is the fonts themselves which are not compatible for some reason or
Extract from /var/log/messages
Oct 14 11:43:26 mats-pc-1 xfs: ignoring font path element
The problem is that the perms on the directory are the same as the perms on
the other font directories:
