SCO Unix/System V Printing FAQ

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.



Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

Print jobs fail, and I get mail complaining "tcgetattr failed: No such device" or "inappropriate I/O control operation" (SCO Unix/System V)

This is caused by an "stty" line in the interface script for a printer that is not connected to a serial or parallel port. Remove the line or use a different interface script.

See What are printer interface scripts?
