  I know this is slightly off-topic (I've tried asking in #GNOME on

got my printers setup nicely from CUPS (I can print test pages, etc.)
but when I try and print from GNOME they are not listed.  Some searching
on Google Groups shows that this integration was planned, but I've been
unable to determine if it's been done (an early post said it would
probably be around for GNOME2.2) and how to use it.

  Any help on getting GNOME to print to local CUPS printers would be
great.  Thanks very much,


By chance do you have cups-lpr installed? Be sure you read the Makefile and a couple of other files because you will needo to tell /etc/make.conf to forever more not make the lp* stuff (that information is in man make.conf) because cups has its own version of the lp* items. Everytime you makeworld you'll wipe it out.

If you do have it installed then you may want to uninstall it then reinstall a make world might have wiped it out.

From there you should then be able to print.

In a few words: Works for me. :) (Well sort of, having some sort of font/printer driver problem where certain fonts are squished together)
