hello,
i am having trouble getting my hp psc2110 printer to work on puppy.
here are the steps i have taken so far;
- used the print wizard to determine that driver "pcl-900" is what works fo my printer, and configured the driver.
- used the "add printer" tool to install the printer; for interface used "local port", and for device used "/dev/usb/lp1" (then tried lp0), but with no luck.
now i figured that it is one of two things, either;
(1) puppy didn't load the proper module for my usb ports, similiar to what happened w/ the audio module.
in that instance puppy loaded "snd-intel8x0" for nvidia n-force onboard sound (turned out to be a module i had to download from forums - nvsound.o.gz)
OR
(2) i am not entering the proper device name, and neither dev/usb/lp0 or 1 is correct.
for reference, when i click on "usb view", it clearly says "PSC 2110 series", so puppy is recognizing something.
any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

no need to respond.
