When I tried to print I checked  .var/spool/cups and I attached file
which may be helpful.
As far asI see dosemu gives it to cups but cups does not print it.

Have you checked the status of the queue? The printer may be ok,
but the queue may be blocked. Queues may be started and stopped
independently of whether the printer is stopped.

INdeed, I print normally from other applications and dosemu itself.
Maybe it requires some change of format in order to get it printed out?

Strange then... it seems everything is configured right but your specific
application doesn't work.
    Have you waited more than 20 seconds?
    Also, you may try putting this in dosemu.conf:
$_lpt1 = "lpr -P Laserprinter"
$_lpt2 = "lpr -P Laserprinter"
$_lpt3 = "lpr -P Laserprinter"
    This is just in case that it uses another port.

    Another thing you can try:
$_lpt1 = "cat>>/tmp/dosemu.lpt1"
$_lpt2 = "cat>>/tmp/dosemu.lpt2"
$_lpt3 = "cat>>/tmp/dosemu.lpt3"
Then try printing from the program and look at those files in /tmp to see
what they contain.

    Hope this helps!

When I do command: dir>PRN it prints a list of subfolders.

My DOS application prints to PRN. Any advise?

Best wishes,

    Your boot.log looks right!
The DOS application prints to LPT1 or PRN? Maybe it prints to LPT2 or LPT3 in which case you can configure them in dosemu.conf to be the same
If you execute under DOS the command "dir>PRN" does it print anything?

    The config file seems correct.
    But maybe DOSEmu isn't reading that file but another.
    Please post the file boot.log (usually in ~/.dosemu/boot.log).

When I want to print from my DOS application I cannot print on my USB
HP LP1020 printer. My printer is named Laserprinter in my cups
configuration. When I print from terminal using command
lpr -P Laserprinter nameoffile
it works well.
You can find my dosemu.conf on this link:

Please advise.
