Re: Printers won't run
The first printer is a windows printer, HP Deskjet 6540, IP
connected, and all of my windows computers can send to it just fine.
Just not my Debian Etch.
I have never done such a thing before. Assuming that you are using
CUPS go to localhost:631/help/ get yourself a cup of coffee and start
reading - the guys of cups did quite a nice job in documentation.
The second printer has the same problem. It is a local USB connected
Epson Stylus CX7800. It worked on this computer in it's previous
incarnation as a Win 2k machine.
As long as it is listed on linuxprinting.org it should work smoothly.
Have you got all the foomatic packeges?
