Thank you, that helped some.
It seems that I was loosing lp over a reboot - but I have to investigate. Just
for now hwinfo shows:
Parallel 00.0: 10900 Printer
[Created at parallel.154]
Unique ID: ffnC.AOY5FSxcvwC
Parent ID: YMnp.ecK7NLYWZ5D
Hardware Class: printer
Model: "HEWLETT-PACKARD DESKJET 920C"
Device: "DESKJET 920C"
Device File: /dev/lp0
Config Status: cfg=new, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
Attached to: #11 (Parallel controller)
Anyway I still don't get a printout. CUPS-setup via http://localhost:631 still
does not show lp. But with KDE I can configure the printer, CUPS then sees
it. But when I submit a printjob I get the error: "Printer not connected".
I will close shop now and go on tomorrow.
Thank you again
