Hi John, i don't know if you have solved but let me give you some hintsThanks, Alberto. I will not need to print from the desktop, per se. We are
The much easier way for link a printer to linux is have also the Lan
interface on it.
When you're able (let's imagine that we're using Ubuntu) to add the
printer to the system , you will be more able to use it as printer on
the AS/400 with lp5250d.
this could be a simple command line :
lp5250d map=280 env.DEVNAME=PRTLASER env.IBMMFRTYPMDL=*HP4
outputcommand="scs2ascii | lp -d YOURPRINTERNAME" myas400.domain
means that you're able now to send a spool file to PRTLASER on the
Iseries and you will get the printed page on your printer. :-)
I assure that this works, i use it every day.
