Iíve been trying to get a network printer using the Add Printer Wizard in KDE, but no luck. Using both the URI (Network printer w/IPP) and port 9100 (Network TCP) results in a ďNo Printer found at the address/portĒ message. If I use port 631 I have no problems setting up the printer, but naturally this ends up botching everything and even the machine to which the printer is connected now isnít able to print anything. The Remote CUPS server option in the Add Printer Wizard is not much help either.
Eventually I turned to the CUPS browser-based interface (http://localhost:631
) and enabled the `Share published printers connected to this systemí option. Last time I enabled this option, work sent to the printer would be printed out twice, but this was probably because two machines were sharing the same hostname, both had the `share published printersí option on, yadda, yadda, yadda, mistakes galore.
Anyway, the thing is, the KDE wizard didnít seem to work without me diving into CUPS. What gives? Has anyone been able to set up a network printer using just the KDE wizard? Why canít it detect the remote printer at port 9100 as the howtos (http://www.mepis.org/olddocs/setting...work-printing/
) say it should?
