Just wondering - why do you want to use CUPS? I did exactly the same thing as you - installed it because it would be 'easy to use' then spent a fortnight configuring it. CUPS in my experience is one of the very few UNIX programs that breaks after a while - everything else might be a bit tricky to configure, but once it works, it keeps working. CUPS randomly decided to throw away jobs, until I threw *it* away in disgust. ESR seems to agree (NB: I am in no way a fan of him, but the article struck a few chords) http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/cups-horror.html Despite all this I am still thinking of trying to reinstall it this week - I don't know why... -- A bird in the hand is worth what it will bring.
