The 4050 printer is part of the 4000 series. Actually, the majority of new Laser printers use the same printer script: net_ljx000 and there is a man page for it.

Re: Installing printer drivers in HPUX 11.11

Hi Jagadesh ,

You can also use this script to add the printer very easily:

############################################
#!/bin/ksh -x

# SCRIPT For adding of SAP Printers.
# The data file is addprt.list
# Please enter the printers name in the file addprt.list to be added.
###########################################


PRINTERS=/home/username/printer/addprt.list

#Turn of the scheduler first

echo " Stopping LP Schedular "
lpshut

for i in `cat $PRINTERS`
do
echo $i
lpadmin -p$i -v/dev/null -mrmodel -ocmrcmodel -osmrsmodel -orm$i-jet-laser -orp$i
echo " Printer $i Created. * * "
accept $i
enable $i
done

#Don't forget to enable the scheduler. Scheduler enabling..
lpsched

echo " Printers Created Successfully "
echo " ------------------------------------------------------------------"
###########################################

Note:
1. /home/username/printer/addprt.list is the flename need to add the printer name , i.e PR10
PR11
PR12
etc..
2. /home/username/printer/add_printers.sc is the script name , to be run to add the prt.
3. in /etc/hosts , IP has to define for the remote printers in the format :
9.110.11.2 PR10-jet-laser #Example.

--------------------------------------

Hope this will help you , if you unable to add via addqueue.

Cheers ,
Raj.

Jagadesh ,

Also Remeber , addqueue , do not stops the LP scheduler , but the script will stop the scheduler for few seconds , and start, and it will not have any impact as its very quick.

Cheers .
