Dosemu will not print to network printers

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Subject says it all.
I have 2 networked printers. Both are set up in printer administration to use lpd/lpr. Both print from OpenOffice etc. and both print from the command line with 'lpr -P NetPrinter some_file_name'. The printer names are listed in /etc/hosts.
However, whatever I do, I cannot get a DOS accounting program nor M$
Word 5.0 to print to any output at all.
I have tried myriad combinations of lines in dosemu.conf including

$_printer = "NetPrinter"
$-printer = "lpr"
and
$_printer = "lpd://192.168.1.11/lp0"

And various versions of the following line, including making the $_printer definition a null "" and putting the entire command in the following:
#$_printer_command = "lpr -l, lpr -l, lpr -l"


The instructions strongly imply that this should "just work".  HA!

Anyone have any ideas/ btw this is all as root...
