printing from cygwin-Xfree remote printer
Mon Feb 25 01:53:00 GMT 2002
I am trying to install LPRng program in Cygwin-Xfree under Windows NT.
It is not an easy task but I understand that the complexity of
Microsoft Windows does not help.
I followed most of the indications to have LPRng installed but I was
stopped by the owner rules
when I tried checkpc in order to get the corrrect seteuid I got the
/usr/local/sbin/checkpc -V -f
micro seteuid_wrapper: seteuid() failed !! Not owner
micro is the name of the machine
I need to print from micro on a remote postscript machine which is
shared and available on micro
I compiled LPRng as indicated after installation all commands are set to
Admin and group none.
I have in /etc/passwd and /etc/group the two following lines respectively
When I configure LPRng with the various uid possibilities. I always end
with files belonging to Administ and group none.
If I do lpstat I get Printer 'HPLaserJ@localhost' -cannot open
connection - Connection refused Make sure the remote host supports the
and accepts connections from this port and from nonprivileged port
I can print from MICRO on this remote printer. under Windows NT
I would appreciate some help to circumvent the system problem and be
able to print from a cygwin-Xfree window.
I installed Ghostscript and Ghostview as they both have printing
possibilities. These 2 programs are running fine but without printing
