Printer error foomatic
I've been trying to install my printer on my new computer the last couple of days, but apparently to no avail. Basically it's the printer that used to be hooked up on my other linux box, though where everything worked fine there, it doesn't on this computer.
It's an Epson Stylus Color 670, using parallel port.
I believe the problem is due to my computer not detecting the printer. There's no entry in my logs and the output of "dmesg" tells me the driver is loaded, but no device detected. /dev/lp0 doesn't exist either apparently.
Cupsd starts as should be, but when I run foomatic-configure, I get this:yume root # foomatic-configure -s cups -p Epson-Stylus_Color_670 -c /dev/lp0 -n Epson -d gimp-print-ijs

lpadmin: add-printer (set device) failed: client-error-not-possible
Could not set up/change the queue "Epson"!
Browsing to http://127.0.0.1:631
and for example clicking on the print test page button gives the same error: "client-error-not-possible"
I've searched the Gentoo forums and google, but I can't seem to find a problem similar of mine. Errors are often the same, but not the symptons.
Any ideas what it could be?
Thanks in advance...

I do remember upgrading perl yesterday or the day before. Could it be a bug in the perl libs? Current Mood: pensive
