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..).
