Problems with connecting to a Remote CUPS Server


Well this is the first time I've been able to get so much working with Linux, however now my Printer isn't working! Went from Red Hat 9 to Slackware 9...when I connected to my Mac OS X box's CUPS printer server it worked fine, however under Slackware I specify the print server and I see the printer..however when I try to create a printer pointing to the remote one or if I try to set that remote one as the default this is what I get:

Unable to create printer. Error message received from manager:
The IPP request failed for an unknown reason.

I have no clue what's going on, I'm pretty sure it's on this end, being that my Windows XP partion can print to it, Red Hat 9 print to it fine when it was on here, and the computer that the printer is connected to works fine, any help would be appreciated thanks.

Oh and one more thing, according to KPackage, my Cups v. 1.1.1.8 package is missing /etc/cups/classes.conf.new, /etc/cups/client.conf.new, /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.new, /etc/cups/interfaces/, /etc/cups/mime.convs.new, /etc/cups/,mime.types.new, and last but not least /etc/cups/printers/conf.new

is this normal?

I can't tell you exactly what the problem is but what I did when I was having problems with CUPS was change the log level to debug2 in the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file. Then restart cups, try and print something, and see if you can get a clue from the log files. I found it messy because debug2 logs EVERYTHING but at least you can step through it and see whats going on.

Okay turned on debug2, here is an excerpt from the log after restarting CUPS and trying to add the printer:

d [26/Apr/2003:02:09:00 -0500] UpdateCUPSBrowse: (110 bytes from 192.168.254.1) 1006 3 ipp://Tonys-Computer.local./printers/DESKJET_930C "Tony’s Computer" "DESKJET 930C" "hp deskjet 930C"
d [26/Apr/2003:02:09:01 -0500] UpdateCUPSBrowse: (140 bytes from 192.168.254.1) 301e 3 ipp://Tonys-Computer.local./printers/DESKJET_930C_WIN "Tony's Computer" "Deskjet 930c For Windows" "HP New DeskJet Series CUPS v1.1"
d [26/Apr/2003:02:09:03 -0500] DeleteCert: removing certificate for pid 0
d [26/Apr/2003:02:09:03 -0500] AddCert: adding certificate for pid 0

What does the -0500 mean after the date and time of each entry? does that mean error 500 as in an internal server error?

hmm I guess the -0500 doesn't mean what I thought it meant, anyway these logs don't seem to be reporting much being wrong, could it be something KDE related?

Ok got this working now too, but only from within KDE Applications, tried KPrinter but didn't seem to have any effect within netscape or vim(X-Window version), is there anyway to set up printing from within these applications?

You can tell other apps to use kprinter to print, check the help pages to find out the voodoo necessary for apps that don't support CUPS natively yet.

The -0500 is your timezone offset I expect.
