I have HP Deskjet 540 connected to lpt1. I have setup the printcap
file according to the "Unix System Administration Handbook", and tried
to print. However, the lpq gives following error message.
"waiting for hp-djet to become ready (offline ?)"
When I manually start the printer with lpc, it gives error saying it
cannot start the daemon. When I manually start the lpd and then run
"lpc start all", it starts fine but gives above error message. When I
check the lpd by typing "ps -aux | grep lpd", it lists two lpds. Any
pointer would be greatly appreciated.
BTW my printcap file contains following lines:
hp-djet|lp|HP Deskjet 540|:\
This is because it shows lpt2 at the boot time.
Thanks in advance.
