I have trouble to configure my HP Laserjet 6L
I used apsfilter with the following options:
(1) Printer Driver Selection [ljet4]
(2) Interface Setup [parallel]
(3) Paper Format [a4]
(4) Printing Quality [high]
(5) Color Mode [gray]
(6) Print Resolution in "dots per inch" [600x600]
(7) Default Printing Method [auto]
The test page works fine. I save and quit the configuration, and restart the print daemon (DSL > System > Printing/dsl > start).
But no matter from which application I try to print from (xpdf, mail, text, etc...) nothing happens.
Does anyone could help? Thanks in advance.

Printer: HP Laserjet 6L on lpt1.
Posted by Juanito on Oct. 28 2007,11:18I never managed to get apsfilter to work, but I remember a couple of posts similar to yours where the very last part of the configuration - that of giving the printer a name and saving it (and perhaps making it the default printer) - had been missed out. Maybe this is the problem?
Did you try to print from a terminal window using lp or lpr?
