    Im trying to get LP printing working on osx

    The offical HP driver for my PSC 1110 doesn't support printing from cups so i installed the hpijs driver, i think i have an LP queue setup heres my config file .

    (/etc/xinetd.d/printer)

    Server:/etc/xinetd.d Dragon$ lpstat -v
    device for psc1100: usb://Hewlett-Packard/psc%201100%20series?serial=MY3ACF301BB0
    Server:/etc/xinetd.d Dragon$

    (sometimes that lists a second printer depending if the offical driver is loaded or not (i removed it when trouble shooting, i know the hpijs driver works becuase i can print to it from textedit)

    Server:/etc/xinetd.d Dragon$ lpr -P psc1110 printer
    lpr: error - unable to print file: client-error-not-found
    Server:/etc/xinetd.d Dragon$


    Could anyone shed some light on where i've gone wrong.

    If you download and install CUPS bundle, Gutenprint, you can consult the included documentation to properly setup your HP.

    Reread my post. I didn't say that Gutenprint directly supported your specific printer. I recommended that you download it because it includes CUPS documentation.
