Sorry, I missed changing the subject line.
Unfortunately, the URL I provided is german only, but I'll try to translate
the main points for you:
Keep in mind that this howto is for LinuxPPC.
1. be sure that you have set up your printer correctly using lpd (use
2. Keep in mind that you have to use the Apple LaserWriter printer driver
8.x on the mac for accessing the printer connected to your linux machine
EVEN IF HAVE AN INK JET PRINTER CONNECTED TO THE YDL MACHINE.
3. modify /etc/atalk/papd.conf that it looks like this:
The first line defines the name (LaserJet 6MP) which is visible in the Mac
pr in the second line points to the linux printer (lp in this example).
pd in the third line is set to the path of the printer description file used
for the printer. You can find this file in the System Folder of your Mac
(printer descriptions). Copy it to a useful directory (e.g. /etc/atalk). You
can find actual printer description files at www.adobe.com.
If you don't have a laser writer connected, you can print under linux using
ghostscript. In this case, have a file /etc/printcap for your printer. Here
is the content of such a file for an Epson Stylus Color for example:
lp|lp2|stcolor-a4-auto-color-360|stcolor a4 auto color 360:\
lp-mono|lp3|stcolor-a4-auto-mono-360|stcolor a4 auto mono 360:\
Additionally write the following lines in /etc/atalk/papd.conf :
Hope this helps.
