MDK 10.0 Official printer Issue


My printer doesn't print, which is a bit annoying since it is it's primary function.

The printer installed fine and was properly recognized ML-1710
it's state is: Stopped (accepting job)

How do i start it?

In services it says Cups is running and on boot is already selected

Should I activate cups-lpd as well?

if you're using KDE, open Kontrol Center->peripherals->printers & check the settings in there. sometimes the MDK settings will conflict with the KDE settings & vice versa.

EDIT: to change printer settings in Kontrol Center, you must first click the "administrator mode" button & supply the password.

i'm using MDK9.2/KDE3.1-3, so maybe they changed/removed it in 3.2. my button is in the lower left corner of the printer configuration panel.
