I'm quite new to porteus and currently trying to set it up on a 32gb USB drive.
Right now I am stuck with getting my printer up and running. I downloaded the most up to date modules from this thread: Printing and scanning for Porteus (The main one and the additional module set for Xfce that was posted on 21 Apr 2018)
When I search for network printers in 'system' > 'print settings' my epson XP-425 is found without issues under (IP: 192.168.0.117:515 and queue: PASSTHRU). Drivers don't give me any issues either.
Now it gives me the option, to print a test page - and here is where everything breaks down:
'Print Error' and the Printer State in the Settings window is stuck at 'Idle - Can't detect file type'
I thought it might have something to do with the paper format so I switched from 'US Letter' to A4 (which I'm using) but to no avail. Same thing happens with any other document I want to print.
Not sure if it's related but I also cannot reach localhost:631 in my browser - it just returns a 'Not Found' message. (I thought I would get a normal CUPS interface but I don't know if it is different on porteus)
I also checked the troubleshoot.txt that 'print settings' gives me but admittedly, I have no idea what to search for.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
