Well, in my defense I *did* download and read through that document. I
just did not (and still do not) completely understand everything in it.
I'm hoping I can get some help here.
I tried setting it up as a socket on port 9100, which one person
(Terrell Prude Jr.) suggested worked great for him. For me, not so much,
that is what gave me the "broken pipe" error. I then tried doing what
the manual suggested, using the URL "lpd://192.168.1.107/USB1_LQ", and
the error I get now is "/usr/lib/cups/backend/lpd failed". Now, there is
some kind of executable file, looks like a binary, at this location, so
it is not a missing file kind of problem. I suspect I am probably
overlooking something that is probably obvious to more experienced
people like you, but I don't know what it is. So I am asking for some help.
