USB to IEEE1284b cable for laserjet 6mp

Post by ThornyBob » Fri Dec 22, 2017 3:32 am

G'day fellas,

totally new here and recent refugee from the dark side... :D

Just thought to advise that a recent purchase from eBay, "USB2-0-To-Parallel-IEEE-1284-36-Pin-Printer-Adapter-Cable-Set-For-HP-DeskJet-BJC", seller "joyeaven", has been a good one !! It is running my old 6MP from a USB port using Mint Mate 18.3 Sylvia. Box is HP z400.

Why use an ancient printer ? easy, there's still two boxes of toner here to get through.... :)

cheers,
Bob
