setting up WInXP printer 20seconds, Linux 20 days? help plz
I'm a noob on Mandrake 10, tried to run through this KDE print utility, starts up and seems ok, finds my printer. Then it brings up a box saying i need a username and password. I even try root and it doesn't take it. If it won't take root or my other names then what does it want? Sigh, I'm afraid linux is going nowhere fast if it's this hard to even get a printer going. I know I know, read the documentation or I only have myself to blame -sorry, but have better things to do than spend two days confusing myself with 50pages of strange ramblings of info on how to print. -apologies am grumpy, thanks for any help..
