I am trying to set up a USB Epson thermal printer in a posboxless environment.
I followed the instructions at:
I'm getting this message when accessing /hw_proxy/status
I set 777 permissions on /dev/usb/lp0, which corresponds to the Epson printer in question.
Any ideas on what am I still missing?
Hi Perry. Sorry for the delay in replying. I ended up starting from scratch, then followed the procedure at this link:
The only thing I did differently was in the following section:
"Then we need to create a udev rule that will automatically allow members of
usbusers to access raw USB devices. To do so create a file called
99-usbusers.rule in the
/etc/udev/rules.d/ directory with the following content:"
The file needs to be named 99-usbusers.rules, i.e. there is a letter s missing at the end of the file name in the instructions.
Let me know if you need any more help.
