Finally got printers installed by going to http://localhost:631
wihich will remote installprinters on your system. It also repaired something (I don't know what) in the ccnfig files somewhere because I was getting errors about cups server not being able to connect-reason unknown.
Digikam is still not retrieving files from the camera. I do have the 'kamera' package installed.
I am also having trouble getting my tv card to play. I have put v4l in the xorg.conf & run v4l-config but xawtv still will not read the stream.
I have almost given up on this install. I am trying to replace my Debian-started-as-Kanotix-bh9 system because I have always had trouble with the DVD driver and the video setup on this system; specifically the DVD is very prone to seek errors on DVD's which will read OK in windows (dual boot system) using the same DVD drive and the video gives segmentation faults with some apps. I installed a minimal Debian system for another reason & discovered that these problems do not occur with the Debian system so I am trying to get it set up as a replacement. However, I am having so many setup problems that I did an install of the latest Kanotix (yes my HD is all chopped up now) to see if it is any better. So far I have discovered that the Digikam problem is the same with it; the tv card works but no sound yet & I haven't had time to check the DVD drive.
Wish I could just figure out how to upgrade the DVD driver & fix the video on the original system as everything else is working fine on it.
