Hello list.

I'm trying to use CUPS for the first time, with all the good things I've 
heard/read about it on this list.  I'm mainly trying to use it as I've got an 
OfficeJet G85 that I've never used with FreeBSD and linuxprinting.org has a 
'mostly' working driver.

Here's what I've done thus far:

I've installed CUPS, and have a running daemon.  I can login and install 
printers.  I've downloaded the recommended the correct .ppd file according to 
linuxprinting.org, and tried installing the foomatic scripts it says I need.  

When I try to print a test page, I get no output what-so-ever and no 
indication on the printer anything has even happened.

I don't know where the CUPS logfile would be, so I can't read that.

Anyone have any ideas?

I also have a Brother HL-1440 that I've gotten working with apsfilter and lpd 
(it's a remote printer off a hardware printserver), but I'd like to get it 
working in CUPS, as it seems much easier to configure margins and such.

Thanks for your help!
