Can I install lpd instead of cups?
Yes, you can use LPRng instead of CUPS. The RPM is still part of the RedHat 9 distribution.
Can I revert to the old entries in printcap that I used to have in RH7/8?
What changes should I make to smb.conf?
You need to make modifications in the [global] share and perhaps in the [printers] share.
The following should be in the [global] share.
Can anyone help?
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
printing = lprng
I am not sure... I will have to ask the others on LQ first.
