didn't work...
Authored by: belette on Jan 21, '03 11:19:34AM
Well, I copy-pasted this:
service printer { disable = no socket_type = stream protocol = tcp wait = no user = root server = /usr/libexec/cups/daemon/cups-lpd groups = yes flags = REUSE server_args = -o document-format=application/octet-stream }
And here's what it tells me:
xinetd[432]: Error reading included directory: /etc/xinetd.d [line=11]
Line 11 is " server_args = -o document-format=application/octet-stream"? what's wrong?

Tip for Canon printers / only use CUPS/GIMP drivers
Authored by: ole-olo on May 02, '03 03:13:53AM

Just for the record:

if you want to use this tip with your Canon printer (i550 in my
case), be sure to setup a additional printer in print server which
uses CUPS or GIMP drivers. Using the original Canon driver does
not work for printer sharing as described above.

Some more instructions:
1. be sure you installed Gimp-Print
2. Open PrintCenter
3. Alt-Click on 'Add Printer..."
4. Choose the last item from the pop-up (Further options?)
5. Select 'USB' for device
6. Give name (i.e. 'i550gimp')
7. Give address (i.e. 'usb://Canon/i550?serial=507UBK') use
'lpinfo -v' in Terminal to find the address you need
8. Choose printer model from the pop-ups at the bottom
9. Continue as described in the original tip

Hope this helps a bit

Ole Saalmann

PS: You should keep the original setup for local printing!
