ultp? libusb? cups - Can't print
I'm trying to get an Epson Stylus NX105 goin', cause it's available.
It's a usb printer. I've found lots of information on ulpt and libusb and am not sure if there is some issues about which is used.
My usb printer shows up as ulpt0 and CUPS does not detect it. The last line prints ugen:
ulpt0 at uhub2 port 2 configuration 1 interface 1 "SEIKO EPSON USB MFP" rev 1.10/1.00 addr 2
ulpt0: using bi-directional mode
ugen0 at uhub2 port 2 configuration 1 "SEIKO EPSON USB MFP" rev 1.10/1.00 addr 2
[/I] So I use xfprint to add a printer with URI file:/dev/ulpt0 or usb:/dev/ulpt0 and it starts processing or printing a page only with file:/dev/ulpt0. It doesn't print though. I'm using a CUPS + Gutenprint driver but I'm thinking that it has something to do with the URI.
It would be really great if I could detect the printer.
BTW. I can print on PC-BSD. That's pretty cool.
If cups can't find your printer, have you considered using lpd? Most printers are Postscript compatible and you can use the Apsfilter port or package to create a /etc/printcap file. The SETUP program runs you through all the steps. You would then need to put
and comment out
If it does not work, you just need to change your rc.conf back the way it was.
Another alternative, if your printer has an ethernet port, is to connect it to your router. Sometimes cups can find network printers more easily.
