dot matrix printer on RH 9
« on: July 24, 2007, 09:28:06 AM »
I have wipro LQ SX gold and Wipro LD DSI 5235 dot matrix printers.  These do not work on REd Hat 9 i have tried varieou drivers, CUPS, LPRng etc as Epson Epdon compatibe and so on.

I have seen them work on SUSE with IBM compatible driver.
where can I get rpm for IBM compatible driver for Red Hat 9?

Can any body help.

Also, see if your printers can get some help from here :
