Author Topic: No More Printing in VL-5.8  (Read 1898 times)

In my VL-5.8 box my printer Epson LQ-300 suddenly does not print, neither files
nor test page just like that from one booting to the other.

The modules are there:
$ /sbin/lsmod|grep lp
lp                     10244  0
parport                31724  2 lp,parport_pc

$ lpq
Epson is ready
Rank    Owner   Job     File(s)                         Total Size
1st     peter   1196    (stdin)                         22528 bytes

In VL-6.* and another linux box printer is working properly all with same kernel.

I deleted the printer, added it again and still no printing.

What could be amiss?
