Hi all. I'm having problems installing a printer on a new 8.1
installation. I want to do this sans CUPS and via lpd. lpd is enabled
in my /etc/rc.conf. Here is my printcap:
Whenever I try and print, for example...lpr -Pphotosmart
/etc/printcap...I get this error message: "lpr: Connection refused"
Now, although I stated that I want to install the printer using lpd,
CUPS is installed on the computer, but not enabled. I seem to recall
that there could be a path problem with lpr if CUPS is installed and one
tries to use lpd, but I've forgotten how to deal with that, if indeed
that is the problem. BTW, I have included ulpt0 as a permission in my
Any help much appreciated.
