I hate posting on here...it means that I am absolutely stuck
I have a fresh install, using latest Etch in KDE. The Printer is a Samsung ML 2010
When using the Control Center>periphials>printer, it freezes at the 'initializing manager'... stage, then errors out several minutes later. It says that it cannot connect to cups.
I have installed cupsys, cupsys-client, cupsys-driver-gutenprint, foomatic-filters, foomatic filters-ppds.
I'm in a round room trying to find the corner to sit in.
I have installed, purged, reinstalled... I have looked at the cool 127.0.0.1:631 port and tried an install from there.
I do not know cups well enough to know what needs to be fixed.
I have learned much so far, but not enough to fix this.
