Hi.

Cups has been borked for some time, so I must use lpd. Several problems when
configuring /etc/printcap however. So far what I have:

1 HP2100tn:rm=192.168.1.9:rp=RAW1:\
2  :sd=/var/spool/lpd/hp2100:lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:\
3  :if=/usr/local/libexec/lf2crlf:\
4  :mx#0:sh:

The Problems:
* Line 1 fails completely with "lpr: lp: unknown printer" when using any
name other than "lp". Tried:
NO: HP2100tn:lp=9100@192.168.1.9:rm=HP2100tn:\
NO: HP2100tn:lp=9100@192.168.1.9:\
WORKS: lp:lp=9100@192.168.1.9:rm=HP2100tn:\
WORKS: lp:rm=192.168.1.9:rp=RAW1:\

* I need to specify below options. Placing in /etc/printcap (line 1) as
lp;r=300x300;q=draft;c=gray;p=a4;m=auto:\
   :rm=192.168.1.9:rp=RAW1:\
results in the same "unknown printer" error. I need to either find the
correct syntax for printcap or I could modify /usr/local/libexec/lf2crlf,
which has:
#!/bin/sh
CR=$'\r'
/usr/bin/sed -e "s/$/${CR}/g"

## will A4 size info here work?
#page_width=
#page_height=
#border=
