hi ya'll

I've been trying to install a printer on
suse 6.4. having had problems I've repeated the
installation procedure (a few times). now the system has a lot of printers installed, all whith different devices. how do I uninstall the printer
so that I can start the installation procedure
blank?

thank you

If you can't find an option in whatever tool you are using to setup your printers have a look in /etc/printcap and remove the lines from there that are relevant to the printer you want to kill off.
