I just installed an HP 2605dn printer on a USB port on Suse 10.2. HP
claims this printer understands postcript, but it doesn't work. Yet
when I hook it up to a Win XP box via USB the printer works fine.
But when I use it from Suse via USB, no luck. When I try to print a
test page from the Suse configurator the printer light blinks,
indicating it's receiving data, but no page is printed. Similarly,
when I "lp test.ps" the green light blinks, but no page is printed.
Long ago with some previous printer I had a similar problem and did
something like copy ctl-L to /dev/lp to force the page eject.
But there is no /dev/lp on this Linux ... why not?
How can I get this printer running?
$ ls /dev
