No I only want to be able to use a local (USB) printer - I don't want to
add this printer to the main CUPS server, just use it myself. I have a
client.conf that points to a CUPS print server, but I can't (and don't
want to) change anything on that server. In event terms, I only has a
local USB printer to start with on a stand-alone laptop with Fedora 8.
Now i've plugged into a network (with static ip), the systems admin
guy has added clients.conf to /etc/cups on my laptop, so I can use
printerw on the network. That's great, but I'd like to be able to use
my own printer as well, but now I can't.
