LXer: Frustrations with Kubuntu Dapper Flight 6 and how it handles CUPS 1.2svn

Published at LXer:

A few weeks ago, Jonathan Riddell had asked me on IRC in passing why kprinter and KDEPrint 3.5.1 didn't work with CUPS-1.2. My reply had been like "CUPS-1.2 hasn't even released an alpha or beta tarball -- w.t.h. does Ubuntu Dapper plan to include an SVN version of a piece of core software which has a yet unknown release date??" Of course, this is not Jonathan's personal field of work -- Kubuntu just inherits the CUPS version and setup which the Ubuntu main developers decided for. Regarding an impending CUPS-1.2 release, prospects have become much brighter in the meanwhile. During March, Mike Sweet released 2 Betas and the first Release Candidate. So a final 1.2.0 release seems pretty close now. After reading this morning that "Dapper Flight 6" was available, I decided to download the Live CD version of Kubuntu. Download took 6 hours, but luckily was completed after I woke up.
