ipp default printer
« on: April 02, 2008, 06:25:42 am »
I have my Epson 880 printer setup via CUPS as follows:

VL-epson880 (Default Printer)
Description: VL-epson880
Location: basement
Printer Driver: Epson Stylus Color 880 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.1.3
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: ipp://

Printing from Abiword using the only printer showing up in the print menu which is "Generic Postscript" it does print, although very slowly.It does not print from any of the text editors but does show up in the printer menu of Adie.
I think this is a permission issue? I have it set as "Default Printer".
How do I check permissions and in Abiword why is the printer name not showing up?
