Install LPRng by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/sbin \ --sysconfdir=/etc && make && make install
There is no generic printcap for all printers. A sample printcap is loaded into the /etc directory which can be of some help. Information is also available at http://www.lprng.org and http://www.linuxprinting.org.
The init script installed by LPRng is not consistent with other BLFS scripts; therefore, install the /etc/rc.d/init.d/lprng init script included in the blfs-bootscripts-5.1 package.
The LPRng package contains cancel, checkpc, lp, lpc, lpd, lpq, lpr, lprm, lprng_certs, lprng_index_certs, lpstat and liblpr.
lprng_index_certs creates a set of index files in the LPRng signing certificate directory.
