Printing via CUPS: Puppy works but not Ubuntu
A brand new clean install of Ubuntu 8.04 tells me it's printed when it hasn't. I look at the cups access log and it says "Not authorised" - that's the local cups. The printer is on a slug and the slug cups doesn't see the print job.
Just set up a fresh install of Puppy on a laptop on the same network and printed perfectly - so no problem with the slug or it's cups setup I assume.
Oh, the machine with Ubuntu had Mint (7.?) on it before and that printed ok. Before installing Puppy on the lappy, I tried Ubuntu on there. It wouldn't print either.
This kind of suggests to me a problem with 8.04. Googling reveals that one or two others have had the same problem, but I've seen no sign of a solution or confirmation that it is a problem with 8.04.
Oh, forgot to mention - the cups server on the Ubuntu box prints a test page successfully, as does the printer installation program. Try and print from any other app and nada.
Anyone have a suggestion?
