Thanks - will give that a shot.
Also, is it just me or is printer install easier in KDE than CUPS browser interface? (or does KDE use CUPS behind the scenes?)
I am having a bad time. I have installed three or four printers using CUPS browser interface and the installs are inconsistent or flaky or both.
example -> Canon bj100
installed once on VL5.8 on this same PC but deleted it. Now can't get it reinstalled.
CUPS should notify that parallel printer port needs to be enabled (finally figured out VASM >hdw set)
CUPS detects canonbj100 and lists the port but then presents about 8-10 different drivers, none which reference the Canon
or it asks for ppd file ( got from linuxprinting ) which I install (and I know it works bc I did it before
) then I start printer , print test and receive error about /usr/lib/filter/foomatic not being there.
I deleted the printer a while back but this shouldn't delete any drivers.
KDE printer installs this printer fine in MDV, PCLOS
Thanks for any help.
