I posted to users, but the problem remained, so I'm posting here and
wasting your precious bandwitdh (sorry).
I purchased a HP LaserJet 1200, connected it to my NetBSD box (running
1.6 release at the moment) - and it didn't work. The system sees the
ulpt1 at uhub0 port 2 configuration 1 interface 0
ulpt1: HewLett Packard HP LaserJet 1200, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 3, iclass 7/1
ulpt1: using bi-directional mode
If I copy a file (PS or ascii) to /dev/ulpt1, there's a delay of a few
seconds before I get the shell prompt back. If I use /dev/ulpn1 instead,
there's no (visible) delay. In both cases, no output is produced, and no
error messages are shown (in the logs even).
I searched the mailing list logs and web and found these:
How do I tweak the USB printer driver to use the other interfaces of
the HP? I'm setting up a test machine where I can swap kernels with
ease, so please help me out a bit.
I could use the parallel port, but I want to avoid it at all cost.
