I am trying to configure a Dell All-in-One A940 for Linux.
All functions work as expected on Windows.
The environment is:
* SuSE Professional 9.0
* kernel 2.4.21-291
* KDE 3.1.4
* USB printer on /dev/usb/lp0
According to linuxprinting.org, cups.org, easysw.com and Google, Dell
A940 is a rebranded Lexmark X125. Some results suggest X5150.
Dell forums do not have clear information about the exact Lexmark
The searches are clear about the scanner: not supported on linux.
It is not critical for my current needs.
I have downloaded the PPD and followed the installation steps
I have tried both /dev/null (as suggested) and /dev/usb/lp0
The print test page does not generate output.
No luck with KDEPrint as well.
Has anyone successfully configured a similar printer?
I am sure I am overlooking or missing something.
All suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks in advance.
