Here's my /etc/cups/printer.conf file for what it's worth. No "-" present.

I'm still stuck. This is especially annoying because the printer did work for one evening after following hubi's instructions. Then I turned the machine off for the night.

What I have: kanotix 2005-4 dist-upgraded several times a week; Epson Stylus Color 640 on parallel port.

What I have tried:

- Uninstalling/reinstalling the printer - nothing.

- Changing printers.conf line to DeviceURI file:/dev/lp0 didn't work - cups died.

- Creating lp0 with modprobe only added a few new lines to my cups error-log complaining that it could not open /dev/lp0, permission denied.

Maybe the best thing to do is go all the way back and reinstall cups again, follow hubi's directions and take better notes this time?

I think that's the best course to take. I rarely turn my computer off or reboot. Unlike Windows where I was constantly rebooting for some reason or other. I would apt-get remove --purge cupsys first, then follow clubex & hubi's suggestions. I finally got mine to work this way, although I've been afraid to reboot again to see if the changes stick.

well, my printer now seems to be working fine, even after several times rebooting, turning printer on/off, etc. I also just updated my kernel to 2.6.17-kanotix-1, but I don't know if that made a difference. here's my printer.conf file:

I admittedly don't know that much, but it seems to me that unless there is a specific feature that a new kernel provides, I don't see any advantage to upgrading it. It is a temptation to have the "latest & greatest" which can sometimes be more trouble than it's worth. The kernel, as I understand things, just provides an interface between hardware & software (GUI) & if things are goin OK, I wouldn't recommend messin with a good thing. I've learned this the hard way, but like I say, I'm certainly no expert on these matters. YMMV. Linux shouldn't have to be rebooted several times (like Windows) for changes to take effect, at least in my experience, so that's why I was kinda suprised that I had to do a reboot to fix this printer problem. I'm still nervous about doing a reboot, cause I'm tired of messin with this thing. At least it's workin now. Smilie

I guess I'm "old school" - where if you're not using something, whether it's a TV, computer, or desk lamp, you turn it off. I don't leave my computer on just to burn electricity. And if the settings don't "stick" after booting back up, then they were never really fixed, IMO.

Anyway, I hope my printers.conf file can help someone solve their CUPS problem.

For people with the newest cupsys-1.2.1-3 I edited my method (which is actually horo's) on page one.

The line to comment is now in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

I was finally able get printing to work & survive reboots by doing what I described here:
