I will be sharing this printer but thought I would check that I could print from the server. Plugged in printer, switched on, connected to server. It must get detected and set up automatically because: lpinfo -v (reports usb://HP/LaserJet%201010 etc) lpoptions -d Laserjet (to set as default printer) lpstat -s (reports LaserJet as default, device usb://HP etc) All good so far. Now I type: lp /tmp/test.txt (I also tried lpr /tmp/test.txt and lp -d LaserJet /tmp/test.txt with the same results) The light flashes on the printer then after about 10 minutes it prints the twenty character file! I guess the printer is waiting for an EOF - is this right and how can I supply it? Will this still be a problem when I share the printer using Samba? Thanks for any help.
