Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Upgraded my SuSE 9.1 as suggested in the sticky thread at the beginning of this forum. Printed once from Konqeror but could not print from apps (OO & Kate). Ran YAST to reconfigure queue and then could not even do that! But the test page prints (the complex looking lpr command is shown.. maybe I could use that instead of KPrinter?). So CUPS seems to be O.K.
So is it KPrinter? Is there a way around this? Or a way back(to the old KDE whatever it was)?
What is going on?
Originally posted by abisko00 I am using kprinter with SUSE 9.1 and KDE 3.3.2 quite happily
Try to check the logs in /var/log/cups
AFAIK, OO has its own printing interface, thus doesn't use kprinter. Not sure about kate.
Good suggestion abiskoOO. I did not see any clear error messages in the error log (but is is quite complex). Seeing you are OK with 3.3.2 I tried another printer (also via the network) which works OK.
I re-installed the offending printer, but it still does nothing (though it works for other machines on the network). I just don't know why it suddenly stopped responding (and works with the test page- I see a new printer is installed for the test..).
