Install LPRng by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib/lprng \ --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-shared && make
Now, as the root user:
make install install -v -d -m755 /usr/share/doc/lprng-3.8.28 && cp -v -R DOCS/* PrintingCookbook \ /usr/share/doc/lprng-3.8.28
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, http://www.linuxprinting.org and the documentation installed in /usr/share/doc/lprng-3.8.28.
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-6.1 package (as the root user):
You may also want to remove the lpd script that was installed in /etc/rc.d/init.d.
