i have a pci parallel card - Altomtech single parallell port on pci hooked to my mobo my mobo is a x48 intel it does not have a parallel port onboard -

i have an epson priinter LX 300 dot matrix....

in windows i connect it under LPT3 and works fine no need to install any drivers...

under hardware manager it says - pci-com port (lpt1) pci-com port (lpt2) pci-com port (lpt3)

i have the original driver cd but ubuntu says cannot copy that into /usr/sbin
which is the instruction on the driver cd readme... to install on linux systems...

please help...

to copy to /usr/bin you need admin privileges
use sudo before your commands


sudo cp lptdriver.bin /usr/bin
