I know - who uses parallel ports any more? People like me with an excellent, but old, HP OfficeJetPro 1150C. This is an old problem marked [SOLVED] in the following link to nowhere
I'm at Fedora 13 - 188.8.131.52-68.fc13.i686.PAE
1. /dev/parport0 is not found by sane unless you reset permissions after each boot
2. hplip udev rules only seem to support usb devices.
3. there are no/dev/parport[0-9] rules in udev/rules.d anymore
4. Did I read something about these ports being handled by HAL ACLs? If so, how do you do it?
ls -laF /dev/parport0
crw-rw---- 1 root lp 99, 0 Jun 23 07:48 /dev/parport0
must do at each boot:
sudo chmod 666 /dev/parport0
someone surely knows the solution to this problem - thanks
