Printing to an LPR printer

Postby monkeytennis » Sun Mar 20, 2011 1:48 pm

Hi, I am having issues printing to my brother HL2035 printer, which is connected to my O2 Wireless box 4. I can print to it with 3 windows 7 pcs but for some reason my LMDE will not connect to it over the net work! It just says it can not connect. Does any one have any idea. The server is O2 and its run off Printer

Did you install the printer on your LMDE box with the correct drivers? The following thread may help.

Installed the LPR and CUPs wrapper. Seems it can't see the surver at lpd://O2 but my windows can and it can see the O2 server in network...don't understand this at all! Has anyone got the O2 wireless box 4 and having the same issues?
