hostname breaks printconf-gui
I thought I'd give my new linux box a new hostname. After I did that,
printconf-gui broke. Something about Xlib: connection to "0:0" refused or something. I googoled that, found it had something to do with hostname, set up my host name to be localhost.localdomain like 'twas originally and poof printconf-gui is all good again.
What I'm really trying to do is share an IPP printer on the Linuxx box with a PC running Windoze. And it said Windoze likes it better if the box it's speaking IPP to has a name rather than IP addy. I read somewhere that you can do this, and IPP sounds like a much cleaner solution than samba, which, let's face it is a glorified hack. so that's why I gave it a name.
and no luck with sharing the printer.
I first tried to share the regular printer, then I decided since I have the driver installed here on the PC I could use it as a raw printer.
