My bjc1000 printer is not printing
it is a parellel cable to a single machine I guess local
I ran the wizard and read the pdf printer setup
choose 4 gimp as it listed my driver bjc1000
us letter 8.5x 11
test print the test page is fine ( actually prints a quarter test page)
pressed I to set values
in terminal typed export printer=bjc1000
looked here /var/spool/lpd/bjc1000
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
parport0: Printer, Canon BJC-1000
lp0: using parport0 (polling).
lp0: console ready
in bever when I click print it say( buffer "untitled1" is being printed)..or the file I open is being printed...nothing happens
I tried various drivers from choice 3 ghost..three will give full test page not centered on the page and will not print a doc.
need help to understand this. The wizard is designed for linux and used by dsl..dsl uses ghost script which allows dsl programs to print useing the drivers listed in the wizard under choice3 , some of which are included in dsl
.my printer is listed under choice4 gimp which I guess requires a gimp script which is not native to dsl and not available to it..but the pdf guide to setup printer suggests useing these drivers as they include most and mine..so I need to download cups and install. what is that, a similar wizard that install more drivers and a new script for available programs, why does the pdf not say you need it.. is this true
.I have no idea what i'm talking about but want to.
