I am having trouble setting up an Epson inkjet printer on a ThinkNIC
client.  I am running K12LTSP 3.1.  The workstation config in lts.conf
is as follows:

        XSERVER             = Xvesa
        LOCAL_APPS          = N
        USE_NFS_SWAP        = N
        SWAPFILE_SIZE       = 48m
        RUNLEVEL            = 5
        SMODULE_01          = cmpci
        MODULE_01           = usb-ohci
        MODULE_02           = printer
        PRINTER_0_DEVICE    = /dev/usb/lp0
        PRINTER_0_TYPE      = S

I used the printer setup gui to create the que as a jetprint port using
port 9100.  The printer is an Epson Stylus C40UX usb printer.

When I try to do a CUPS test print all I get is error message that the
client is busy, retrying in 5 seconds; however, it doesn't.

Any Suggestions?
