adding a network printer (CUPS) help....
And the lucky winner is.... DEBIAN.
okay, so i am not sure if this is the best place ot have this question, but here goes....
In our lab, we have a handful of pc's and a handful of HPs with one printer hooked up to our lan. My job is to get the printer up and running on one of the HPs running debian.
I went through and with the apt-cache grabbed a bunch of what i assume are all i need for cups to work.
onto the rattling questions; the printer.conf file. is this file from teh printer server side, and am i supposed to modify this on my linux box so it will accept ips from the boxes i want to print (i.e. the same box i am on). The printer is not wired directly to any computer, but i do have an ip for it, so that isn't a problem finding that.
Also, at what point and where do i enter in the ip of the printer?
Forgive me if i am unclear or missing something, but my brain is frazzled.
As much info as there is on cups, none of it seems to fit what i need exactly. Thanks for the help
UPDATE: FORGET ALL THIS. The whole question stemmed from me having trouble getting the localhost page to run on my machine. once that worked, i set up teh printer w/ absolutely no problem whatsoever.
