what does the statement mean???


I am trying to install mkahawa and i dont understand what the following statement means

'Add a product on the mkahawa-server interface with exactly the same name as in the print-server's cups interface. (On the print server, preview http://localhost:631 for the cups interface) It is important that the printer has exactly the same name as the cups printer name.'

Try reading the sentences in reverse order:

It is important that the printer has exactly the same name as the cups printer name.

On the print server, preview http://localhost:631 for the cups interface.
(This is the cups web interface, where you can get the exact printer name to use, assuming you have it set up on your system.)

Add a product on the mkahawa-server interface with exactly the same name as in the print-server's cups interface.
(Add the printer name you got from cups).

I've never used mkahawa though, so I'm just going by the text you gave.

I've noticed you have been posting several elementary questions to the forum lately. You really need to start doing some research for Gnu/Linux, I have given you some links below that will get you started.

For 'cups' online help; http://localhost:631/help/

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding. I would start at 9,2 & 7 while the other links will enhance your experience;



1 Linux Documentation Project
2 Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3 Linux Command Guide
4 Bash Beginners Guide
5 Bash Reference Manual
6 Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7 Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8 LinuxSelfHelp
9 Getting Started with Linux

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
