Cups is up and running BUT I cannot make any changes through printconfig. I’m accessing this site through putty so I have no access to the gui interface. Before I upgraded printconfig worked fine. Now it does not save anything to the print configuration. If I use lpadmin to add printers it works fine. Did I miss something? I really need the printconf because I need to set up some remote printers.

I had someone onsite use the console and go into printers from there and none of the changes that they make stay either. I had them edit a laser printer that I setup (that was defaulting to raw print queue)to a laserjet. Once she applies it, goes out and comes right back in it goes back to raw print queue. I'm not sure why.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

thanks all

**EDIT**
It appears that the permissions are not the same. On a working system the /etc/cups directory permissions are drwxrwxr-x and on the system I'm having problems with they are drwxr-xr-x and inside the directory printers.conf permissions are -rw------- where as on the working system they are -rw-r-----. Everytime I change the permissions and run printconf the permissions are beging changed back. I'm stumped.

**EDIT #2**
I have this error in the /var/log/cups/error_log

PID 22218 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster) stopped with status 1!
I [23/Apr/2007:17:23:41 -0400] Hint: Try setting the LogLevel to "debug" to find out more.

Could this be affecting anything?

any help will now be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated. hahaha
