I have very few experience with CUPS (prefer apsfilter or PS), but as far as I understood, the printcap file is altered every time a printer is changed. So when you remove the existing printer and create it again, all files should be regenerated, both the /etc/printcap file as well as the files in the /usr/local/etc/cups subtree. Deleting and recreating still sounds like the "Windows" way of doing things, but due to my impression that CUPS is designed in a way that it appeals this special kind of users' expectations, this may be the only way to achieve your goal. -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
