USB printers

By 100605.3576 ·
I am an amateur 'C' programmer. I have been using an Epson 4oo printer which works well with the usual printing functions eg
fptr=fopen("prn","w") followed by
fprintf(fptr," etc etc).
I have now bought a Lexmark printer 1380 which will not work with this coding. I suspect the difference between these printers is that the Epson uses parallel connection whereas the Lexmark uses USB.
Is there a way around this problem? Nothing too complex please!!

Printer properties

by Bizzo In reply to USB printers

Not 100% sure if you can do this with USB printers, but ...

Open the printer properties, and you should have a "ports" tab, click this and check the box for "LPT1: Printer Port".

This should allow you to print as you have been doing.
