Re: Printer Daemon (Update)
Here's the output:
srwxrwx--- 1 root wheel 0 Nov 21 23:14 /var/run/printer
uid=1001(tim) gid=1001(tim) groups=1001(tim)
and this is the error I'm seeing:
> /usr/bin/lpr -PHPLaser /home/tim/test
lpr: Unable to connect to /var/run/printer: Permission denied
lpr: Check to see if the master 'lpd' process is running.
jobs queued, but cannot start daemon.
Note that the lpd daemon is definitely running, so that's not an issue. I think that error means that it can't fork the daemon to handle this job. Also, here's what I see in the spool dir:
> ls -la /var/spool/output/lpd
drwxr-xr-x 1 root daemon 0 Nov 21 23:17 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 root daemon 0 Nov 21 22:52 ..
-rw-rw---x 1 root daemon 4 Nov 21 23:17 .seq
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root daemon 32 Nov 21 23:15 lock
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root daemon 25 Nov 21 23:14 status
That job will stay in the queue forever until I restart the queue or "bump" it by printing something as root.

ls -al /var/run/printer
What are the exact error messages you are receiving?
