Cannot print


Should I then downgrade to cupsys 1.1.23-12; and if so, after removing cupsys, would I have to hand install the testing version?

Yes - it looks like it. I'm not sure of the most efficient way to downgrade. There may be some trick like forcing it to install from the stable tree, but I never really figured out all the details of Debian packages.

I have 1.1.23-12 and apt-get tells me its the current version.
