Fixed Mint12 parallel port not found in cups.

Postby stanley82 » Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:31 pm

In cups adding my old Epson stylus color 660 failed as add printer did not give a lp type parallel port option.

had info and I did a
sudo gedit /etc/group
and change the line starting with lp tobe lp::7:daemon,lp,myname (change myname to yourname)
after that I restarted the machine and bingo added the printer. Hope this helps any other lost souls. Ian.

I've done this on Mint 13, 15 and debian mint, only way I could get parallel port to show up in cups/add printer.
