What is "///dev/null"?
Authored by: dzinoguy on Jul 07, '04 06:00:46PM

When I type "lpstat -v" into Terminal, I get:

device for Stylus_Pro_4000: ///dev/null

I am using an Epson 4000 via USB. What does the dev/null mean? Does this mean I cannot share it with OS 9?

Printing from OS 9 apps?
Authored by: kestra on Jul 10, '04 12:49:55AM

I don't have a separate OS 9 machine, just "Classic" on my Panther OS X G5. But it says "Printing from Classic is not supported," or it wants the printer networked in order to print from my old OS 9 apps like Adobe Photoshop or Quark 4.1. I have an HP 1200 series printer/scanner/copy machine. How do I make it print from those apps on the G5?

Have you installed the appropriate driver in Classic?
