Support for parallel port printers in openSUSE 11.4 and 12.1

Starting with 11.4, openSUSE has a bug that prevents it from detecting parallel port printers.  The problem is that the kernel module “lp” is not auto-loaded.  The bug is known, solutions exist, but it seems it takes an unknown number of months to actually release the official bugfix.

Just add the repository that corresponds to your distribution version from the link below and install the package parallel-printer-support
