Can't add printer....


Hey guys....
After installing Ximian Desktop2, I can't add a ny network printers. If I go to the Administrator settings, or "Printers" in the System menu and click on it, I get a ":///Printers is not a valid location" error. I need to be able to add network printers, do you know what's going on? I downloaded and installed all available packages via RedHat's Software Update, but apparently it erased my printers. Thanks.

Hmm well my experience is also that most of this tools don't work properly. Try to define if you have APSFILTER installed. This is an easy commandline tool, to install local/network printers .....
