Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12837
no activity on printer
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Printer Model - EPSON STYLUS PHOTO 1200
DESCRIPTION:EPSON Stylus Photo 1200;
All above fetched succesfully by parport_probe
Result of Print Ascii test page - no response in printer
Print ASCII directly to port - no response from printer
If I connect an EPSON COLOUR 800 printer first and install the driver
for the ESC/P2 printer and then remove the parallel port from the back of
the printer and connect it to the STYLUS PHOTO 1200, then the ASCII test
page prints correctly. The post-script test page prints with wrong
The status for lp in /var/spool/lpd/lp/status is
lp is ready and printing.
But whatever I do the printer is stone dead and does not respond - when I
try to install it using printtool.
I have tried both gnu ghostscript 5.50 as well as alladin 6.01..
I am using redhat 6.2..
Any help will be appreciated.
Does something simple like
echo "Test Test Test" >/dev/lp0
If not, what error message does it output?
Do you have the line
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
