have you shared the printer from the windows side? the instructions may be long, but reading them and executing them one at a time should be less confusing. when using a how to this is the approach i take, don't try to read it all and digest it at once. print it out if you have too. read a few steps, try and understand them, then execute one at a time. the how to is pretty clear, but, post any steps you've completed, and any errors, and we'll try to help you.

what exactly did you "screw up" those instructions shouldn't foul up anything so major as to require a reinstall? in any event, what steps have you taken so far? i'll try and walk you through this one time.

so you now have a fresh install? if so, first do you have all of these installed?

http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/....html#packages

second what model printer is it? do you have it shared from the windows side properly? let's figure out these ?'s, then move on to configuring things from the linux side.
good luck.

not sure what versions of the other packages you installed, but, have a look at this

http://packages.debian.org/cgi-bin/s...le&release=all

what model printer do you have?
good luck.

according to this

http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_pr...-Stylus_CX3200

you'll need the gimp-print driver. the link also states that if your model doesn't show up you can use the c62 model, as the y have the same engine. did you get evrything installed yet?
