Yeah, the documentation is minimal as is the error reporting (although the Installer script is quite good). That error probably means it can't contact the printer.

What sort of printer is it? If it's a newish one it may well support IPP natively, in which case the details you need will be in the web interface on the printer.

Nope, it's a HP Laserjet 5L Centronics.
I have it plugged to a FritzBox 7240 through an USB to Centronics adapter.
Not even the router tells me there is a printer by name installed, it just says "Prolific Technology Inc. IEEE-1284 Controller USB-Drucker", still it works when sending the data RAW through lpr (at least it did)

If not, you'll need to install CUPS on a Linux box, set that up so it can print, and also set "share printers" and "remote admin" in the server settings.

Then you can go to http://printserver:631/printers - that will show all the printers, the whole printer URL you need to give ipp.device is the URL behind the link for whatever the printer is.

That's unfortunately no option for me

Quote:

If it's an HP printer, apparently the URL should be http://169.254.15.2:631/ipp/port1 (with your printer's IP address in place of that one of course)

I take it you mean "new" HP printers here?
Because with this method i get the same "error".

Hmm, i'll need to install the Centronics LAN/WLAN print server again i have lying around here...iirc it was able to give a name to the installed printer.

It's a Trendnet TEW-P1PG

Will see if that one helps.

Thank you for the info and heads up, Chris

EDIT:
Gone back to lpr printing (now over the Trendnet printserver - need to check if the crashes i get are maybe caused by the not 100% supported USB adapter - two test pages didn't bring up a crash at least).

IPP is said to work with the Trendnet but it's not, at least not internally, i get a "Function not supported" or similar when trying to browse to print.server:631/printers/printer-name.

I also tried lpd from ssolie, but ... i dunno what to do, i installed it as internet server...but then what? Where do i send the print jobs? The documentation on this one is even worse than the ipp one for a linux/printing noob like me... (sorry Steven)

I can't find any mention of IPP in the FritzBox manual.

Yes, ones with an internal JetDirect.

No mention of it in the manual, and a webpage with specifications on didn't mention it either.

No idea. I think I tried it once and didn't get anywhere.

Yes, the Trendnet itself has a "Network" page within it's web config, showing IPP as part of the print job lists...this is how it looks like, so i thought it's supported internally (but as i found it's not):

Trying to figure out why there is a crash on exit. Might have to drop the ixemul version and just work on finishing removing dependencies(waiting for more tests tho.).

My new HP Photosmart 5520 Multifuntion works great with the Photosmart driver and usbprinter.device.

I tested in Final Writer and Wordworth 7.
Next test is with a graphics program.

I know we had a lot of flamming in the past, but thank you for your good work.
Better printing sys for AROS as well MorphOS/AmigaOS 4 is essential.

P.S.
If you want to be removed from CUSA troll list, just PM me

well my old trusty LaserJet 1012 finally broke down on me after all these years so I'm hoping I can get my HP LaserJet 2600n working with AOS either via USB or network (ethernet) via gutenprint

Great I hope my Samsung ML-1640 or HP PSC 1210 are close enough to supported models to show a sign of life

Tell us if there's a beta available, love to try it out.

It pains me to see the crashes from netprinter, lpr and the likes when trying to print lots of pages when on the pc side everything runs fine :-/

At least i know the printer is good
