I saw that you have problems with the printer in SuSE 9.1, using Lprng,
no parallel device (/dev/lp?) found. It seems that
your parallel port is not properly configured.
I know the solution for your problem, but I still have other problems.
Your problem is that Yast delete the file lp0 in the folder /dev you
only have to recreate it with the command mknod and give the correct
owner and permissions, like root you type this:
mknod lp0 c 6 0
chmod 660 lp0
chown root:lp lp0
With this you can print in command line and If you configure kprinter
before you change to Lprng you can print with kprinter, but I can't
print from Opera or Evolution and when I try to print the program dies
and I have to close it. It's terrible, SuSE changes a lot and makes all
things more difficult. Well, if you know how can I print from those
programs please tell me.
And remember that every time you call Yast you have to recreate /dev/lp0
