printer


I don't know if I will use lpr or cups in the future, I'm trying to print something anyway.
1)CUPS:
When running kups, I had
-> Kups can't connect to cups server, check options
Could someone send me his own options (and where to write it)?

2)LPR:
I'd like to know how to make a good (proper) report for "lpr" printing system (should I send my /etc/printcap ? etc...).
Then, I'll be able to send my problem to the forum.

Open a terminal and do "top" and look for cupsd, if it's not there then you need to start your cups daemon.

Another good way to see if cups is running:
ps ax | grep cupsd

Make sure you read the printing HOWTO at http://www.linuxdoc.org

Also, http://www.linuxprinting.org is an excellent site.
