Hi,

Okay, in steno:
- start the webbrowser with 127.0.0.1:631, if it is a network printer, enter the IP address of the machine/server the printer is bolted on to
- add the printer (follow the wizard)
- locally, go to System-Administration-Printing
- add the same printer with the same settings
- if it is a printer on the network, make sure it's shared
- locally, enter the address ipp://ip.address and hit the test button
- if all is well, the printer should make itself available
- do a test print (openoffice, write, big graphical page)

done

things to check:
- if you want to add the printer remotely, the apache server has to be set up for that
- get the gutenprint driver pack, it's sure to have a suitable driver

at least make sure the printer works on the machine it's linked to (in case of a network printer) before installing it on a client...

Succes!

Thor
