BTW, The HP 960c is a great work printer and Mepis is very good, good reliable choices.
Yup....I just got it working on my fresh Mepis 6.0 install. . .now off to mom's house to save the day over there. . .LOL.
This time, I used the "KDE" printer manager thingy. I was surprised at how simple it was. Earlier (months ago) I had to loopback, go to some localhost631 or something like that...it was a PITA for a n00b. That was on Mepis 3.43...I suppose I could have done the same "KDE" set-up back then as well.
I'm not so sure what the difference is between the two, but I am glad I found an easier method (note to Mepis developers: the more simple you keep it for us n00bs, the better!!! Keep it up!!!)
