It's lpd/lpr host or printer...

Last problem.. In http://localhost:631/admin there is this error:

hp "/usr/lib/cups/backend/usb failed" so why? sad.gif
/dev/null
How do I know the "device uri"? I try "usb:/dev/usb/lp0" but don't work..

Try replacing usb0: with lpd: or lpr:.

can you post your cupsd.conf and printers.conf? tongue.gif

I've never configured a USB printer with CUPS. My lpd ethernet printer uses lpd://ipaddress/ for that line, though, so I figured it may work for you.

For cups you have installed cups and cupsclient packages or cups only?

I've just done an "emerge cups" or used the one in the repos (on my laptop) tongue.gif

Seriously, though, I never got CUPS working on my Zaurus. I don't know which package you need, so perhaps untarring them and seeing what they contain is the way to go.

Here's the thread on my printing adventure:

http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...=how+do+I+print

It may or may not help. Searching "cups" on the forums also brought up the "new packages" thread, which may have a newer version for you. That might help.

"emerge cups" with pdaxrom? Is it possible with pdaxii13 also? wink.gif
