Printer worked until today.
Running SuSE 9.2.
Printer is HP Laserjet 1100A.
Tried installing hpoj-0.91 in an attempt to get the scanner
to work. Somewhere along the line the printer no longer
I notice that when I first boot the system there is a
"crw-rw--- 1 root lp 6, 0 2004-12-18 21:16 /dev/lp0"
In Yast at "Parallel printer connection" I specify /dev/lp0 as
the first parallel port. When I "Test Printer Connection"
it is suppose to print "Hello, world" on the printer. Well,
/dev/lp0 changes to an ascii file, see the follow
eck@linux:/dev> file /dev/lp0
/dev/lp0: ASCII text, with CR line terminators
Can anyone help me get my printer working again?
I've tried reinstalling the printer software under Yast.
I've remove and reinstalled Cups.
I'm at a loss as to what to do next short of reinstalling
SuSE 9.2 again.
