NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     mkcentpr -	install	a parallel (Centronics)	interface System V printer

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     mkcentpr installs a printer with a	parallel interface for use with	the
     System V printer spooling system.

     mkcentpr is an interactive	installation program that will display
     available options and prompt for the relevant installation	parameters.
     You must be root to execute mkcentpr.

     The program first asks for	the name you wish to give the printer. This
     name must be no more than fourteen	characters. See	lpadmin(1M) for	more
     information on naming printers. After entering a name for the printer,
     the program asks for the pathname of the parallel port device file.
     mkcentpr attempts to determine an appropriate default parallel device
     file. To accept the default device	press Enter at the prompt.  If a
     printer is	already	installed on the specified parallel port the name of
     the printer is displayed and the option is	given to continue or abort the

     Once a name and device have been selected for the printer,	a list of
     printer types is displayed. Enter the number of the printer type you wish
     to	install.

     The printer will be installed and the current printing environment	will
     be	displayed (i.e.	lpstat -t).
