It does something, bt still doesn't work:
Mar 2 14:21:17 xxxxxx lpd: lpd startup succeeded
Mar 2 14:21:27 xxxxxx kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [SPP,PS2]
Mar 2 14:21:28 xxxxxx kernel: parport0: Printer, HEWLETT-PACKARD DESKJET 850C
Mar 2 14:21:39 xxxxxx lpd: lpd shutdown succeeded
-> Mar 2 14:21:39 xxxxxx lpd: lp: no line printer device or host name
Why is this?
printtool still says that it can't find /dev/lp.
