I am testing DSL 1.2 Live CD I downloaded recently. I tried to install my old HP4L printer (which works fine with XP). In the DSL control panel I selected and went through "Printer setup" without difficulty. My printer was found as "gimp/pcl-4l" and I had no error report during the process.
But printing a test page failed. I had the following report:
'Creating test page:
sh: line1: ijsgimpprint: command not found
GNU Ghostscript 7.05: can't start ijs server "ijsgimmprint"
*** unable to open the initial device quitting.'
In the console "dmesg" says:
parport0: PC style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP, TRISTATE, EPP]
parport0: irq 7 detected
parport: legacy device
lp0: using partport0 (polling)
lp0: console ready
I have no idea, what could be the problem ? As I understand DSL sees my printer. But why it does not print a test page ?
Any ideas ? Thanks
