Hello to all of you,

I just installed cups and tried to add a new printer with:

lpadmin -p HPDeskJet -E -v parallel:/dev/lp0 -m deskjet.ppd

but I keep getting this error message:

lpadmin: add-printer failed: client-error-not-possible

I dis ls /dev and found nothing that sounded like parallelport.... no lp0 or something, although parport-support is staticly compiled into the kernel. So I created a device with the following command:

mknod -m /dev/lp0 c 6 0
chown root.daemon /dev/lp0

'cat /etc/someasciifile > /dev/lp0' says '/dev/lp0: Permission denied'

What am I doing wrong??:-((

So thankful for any help...

Do you have printer support compiled into your kernel? (CONFIG_PRINTER)

Also, does the web interface for CUPS work? (http://localhost:631)
