Cups + USB-Printer
since OpenBSD 4.3 the Gutenprint drivers are available and yesterday I have tried to install Cups with Gutenprint on my Epson C42UX inkjet printer (an older, cheap model that runs with Cups and Gutenprint perfectly under Debian).
I've installed cups and ghostscript, exchanged ghostscript and installed ghostscript-cups (via "pkg_add -r") and then, as last step, I've installed Gutenprint and Gutenprint-Cups.
In the Browserinterface (localhost:631) I could choose the driver for my printer and everything looked perfect.
But when I try to print a testpage nothing happens at the printer. A look into /var/log/cups/error-log shows:
And when I try out "chmod 666 /dev/ulpt0" the printer starts printing nonsense (a clutter of letters and symbols).
So, what have I done wrong or which step is missing?
