10.3: Share a Panther printer with OS 9
Authored by: strickm on Feb 04, '04 09:50:34AM
When I first used lpstat -v on my OS X machine, I saw a similar message:
device for Stylus_COLOR_980: ///dev/null
Since one of the other OS X machines on our network was already using my printer through Printer Sharing and they were reporting a strange message within Printer Setup, I decided to delete the printer in my list, search for and remove all plist and other preference files for that printer from the Finder (using Find), then re-add the printer. Now, lpstat -v reports:
device for Stylus_COLOR_980: usb://EPSON/Stylus%20COLOR%20980?serial=dc0dc0011291021390
Then, I was able to get the tip to work perfectly. Good luck.
