Linux General question
Posted on 1997-09-11
I have been trying for a while to get my canon bjc-240 to work under Linux.
I have read the printing-HOWTO, but still have a few questions...
I am able to cat text to the printer, but I get a staircase effect. I
understand that I need to set up filters in lpd to take care of this...
What is the easiest way to go about this?
When I do lpr filename, I get the message: connection to lp@myhostname
failed - connection refused.
What am I doing wrong? If anyone has the same printer, your lpd.conf and
printcap would be extremely helpful.
Thanks a lot!
