Print failure in Kubuntu Breezy
I have posted this here rather than elsewhere because the problem relates (in my confused mind!!) specifically to Kubuntu. Basically, I installed Breezy on my IBM Thinkpad 600X and cannot print from it at all. In Debian Unstable, I could print without problems. Debian Unstable is now gone and I am more than happy with Kubuntu so far.
Initially, I tried to set up a network printer. The printer and server are fine. Other boxes (none of them are Kubuntu -- mainly Mandriva) can print to the printer easily. I can locate the printer on the network and set it up using KDE tools but nothing prints --- though all seems to be well. The printer appears in localhost:631. This particular printer is attached to a Windows 98 SE PC. I "stole" the printer and tried setting it up connected directly to my laptop but that also failed to print. The printer was detected though!! There is another printer on my network. It is attached to a Mandriva box and serves six other boxes. I can't even find that printer when setting up printers on my laptop.
All printing related software seems to be installed (well done Kubuntu) but I can't print.
Clearly the problem is with my laptop and not the network.
Please help. I feel like crying but I am going to be brave.
