Recently installed peanut on my computer and am kind of stumped on what to do about setting up the printer.
I downloaded cups-1.1.6-peanut.tar.bz2 and followed the install which was tar xIvpf cups* -C / then typed cupsd. The instructions then said to go to netscape to http:\\ localhost 631 and select your printer and your set. When I go to that sight and select printer there aren't any there. Is this something I have to add and also what do they mean by your set?
Is there some other way to complete the setup?
Any suggestions would be more than welcome.
