Do you try to print in the text mode
like ls -l >/dev/lp0
or   ls -l >/dev/lp1
if your printer is a parallel to verify if you port,cable,or printer is ok?
I thing it`s the first thing to do.

You might try adding the following lines to your /etc/conf.modules

alias /dev/printers lp
alias /dev/lp* lp
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc

Adding those 3 lines fixed my similar printing problems.

I have similar problems with SuSE 6.3 using an Epson Stylus 800. I'm also very interrested in the answer. My printer does not turn on at all (and it works with Win95). I've already tried apsfilter.
