cups printing: can print test page, but printer not available in openoffice
I have (successfully) set up a printer on my desktop. I can successfully print a test page, however, when I go to OpenOffice to print a document, my printers aren't listed there.
It definately was there about 36 hours ago, as I printed from it.
I have looked into the commanline stuff, but I get errors:
root@archimedes hamish # lpr
lpr: error - scheduler not responding!
root@archimedes hamish # lpstat hamishjames
lpstat: get-jobs failed: client-error-forbidden
Then, I thought about reinstalling it under a different name, but got another error:
root@archimedes hamish # foomatic-configure -s cups -p Epson-Stylus_C42UX -c file:/dev/usb/lp0 -n c42ux -d gimp-print-ijs
lpinfo: cups-get-devices failed: client-error-forbidden
lpadmin: add-printer (enable) failed: client-error-forbidden
Could not set up/change the queue "c42ux"!
root@archimedes hamish #
All correct modules are loaded - indeed, it DOES work because I can print the test page - however, it doesn't seem happy!
One thing I did, which maybe damaged it was to run the "gnome-cups-manager" (which didn't highlight that I had a printer isntalled) and I wonder if that earased my printers and changed the cups stuff which I had. Does that sound likely?
Thanks in advance.
