I have TC 4.7 installed on a POS and attached to it is a label/receipt printer connected locally on the parallel port.
I dont have the drivers to the printer. It is expected to print only text.
I have installed CUPS and also foomatic-rip. I used the cups webpage for adding and configuring the printer. I configured the printer as Generic and Raw types, but it wouldnt print the test page.
It did create a print job when I used the command line >lp -d test1 filename . But it wouldnt just print the file.
I have attached the "error_log" file.
It gives insecure permissions but I have given root permissions to the /usr/local/lib/cups directory but it doesnt help.
Also, have the "bad driver information file" for the cups filter, because it cant find include file pcl.h, is there some thing that Iam missing?
I also tried printing using >text2lp0 filename but this didn't work either.
Any help will be great guys, thanks in advance.
