CUPS installed deskjet 1220C via USB
i have installed my deskjet 1220C via USB with cups.. great. test page printed..
ran the lpd (after banging my head against some silicon walls).. but in my lpstat i get:

Error: loop in printcap- firstname.lastname@example.org
i'm assuming the problem is in the last line where it says 'Error: loop in printcap' but who am i to assume...
do i need to link the CUPS to the LPD or something?
i've never installed a printer in linux before..
so what am i missing? i read thru the Printing HOW-TO and insyte's slackware tutorial, but i feel i'm at a dead end..
ok.. i just noticed the 'Status: waiting for subserver to exit at 23:90:45.849' --no idea what that is.
