I've got two network printers which are
HP Laserjet 4200 which is on 192.168.0.101:9100
HP Deskjet 3820(color) which is on 192.168.0.102:9100
I need to set up my printing right. Basically I do not care what printing system to use -as long as I can print:
Documents from OpenOffice
Web Pages from Firefox & Opera
E-mail messages from Sylpheed
Sipmle text files from ..say gvim
anything from console
I've found several drivers on www.linuxprinting.org for both printers.
Using Driver "HP lasejet Series CUPS"
Test page printing says cancelled, here is output log:
I [06/Apr/2005:20:09:19 +0500] Printer 'HP4200' modified by 'root'.

Another one -
# pacman -Qi ghostscript Name : ghostscript Version : 7.07.1-5 Groups : None Packager : dorphell <email@example.com> URL : License : Architecture : Size : 14427795 Build Date : Sat Mar 20 23:18:34 2004 UTC Install Date : Wed Apr 6 14:02:34 2005 UTC Install Script : No Reason: : explicitly installed Provides : None Depends On : gimp-print glib xfree86 Required By : None Conflicts With : None Description : An interpreter for the PostScript language
So can anyone pls advise me what is wrong ?
Also is there a more "simple" print system, where I can print with one simple command from console of everywhere descibed above ?
P.S. I'm able to print Test Page using raw driver, but when I'm trying to configure printer CUPS reports:
CUPS (Can't Usually Print Stuff) is nice when it works and a pain when it doesn't.
I have a page on cups http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/cups.html
and I believe it has a link to cups and Arch.
See if any of the suggestions there help.
the issue is solved by reinstalling CUPS & all supporting packages...
