I use this usb to parallel cable on Linux  (only paid $7 in 2009 from
a different seller maybe) with my old printer and it all works.  No
software needed.

It puts my printer on /dev/usb/lp0 automatically.   The automated
printing software included with Linux (Cups/Kde), sees the printer and
knows what it is.


I have read a little, about possible issues with two way
communication?   I decided to just try it, and in my case, for a
printer, works great.
