Epson stylus color 740 Printer


At the begining localhost:631 would refuse me,so I started looking around and the advice I found was to uninstall cups and all its files and folders so that I did.I reinstalled cups and gimp-print and tried again using kde's wizard and my printer is there [usb] the driver I have used before is there,looks good,but still will not print,I looked for cups in dmesg and I don't see it starting.What should I try next,thanks david

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start

Browse to http://localhost:631, login with root password
Add a printer class, add a printer then choose epson gimp driver for color 740

It is simple, on a terminal, type :

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start


[edit]
Hey my mistake (stupid typo error), it was /etc directory not /ect of course
