[SOLVED] No Printing with VL-6-STD
« on: June 22, 2010, 06:09:29 pm »

I am unable to print with my Epson LQ-300 printer with new install of VL-6-STD.

I have tried all the tricks I now of and nothong will work. Some time ago when I
was testing yet VL-6-STD I never could get it to print. I did not pay attention then
since I had no intend to use this version and was more than happe with VL-Light.

In one partition I have VL-6-Light installed and have no problem printing with my
Epson printer. Right now if I have to print something I have to go into this box.

I guess I have no other choice but to remove VL-6-STD and again install VL-6-Light.
That should solve as well a few other problems I unfortunately have with STD.

Naturally better suggestions are welcome.

Do you have the parallel port enabled? It's off by default in VL6 Standard.

Sorry forgot to mention that the printer is connected to a USB port and yes
parallel port is enabled. When setting-up the printer cups should detect under
Devices the "usb:/Unknown/" which is, however, not listed.

I now copied VL-6-Light over to VL-6-STD and on first try the printer printed. :) :)

Since In had alrady put some efforts into the new install of VL6-STD, this way
I did retain all the files I had upgraded or installed. ;)
