Wireless Printers in Slackware without all the extra hassle. Just Cups and Gutenprint

No need for additional drivers unless there not present in Gutenprint.

Use ipp://Printer.IP.Address.Here:631/ or http://Printer.IP.Address.Here:631/

Might I inquire why not setup a network printer directly?

I actually had to do exactly vice-versa once. I had a custom Suse install that had a tiny bug in the system-config-printer, every time you tried to add a printer it would go into an endless loop searching for drivers. I finally figured out if I added the printer as a network printer(any phoney ip works) then edit it later to add the driver and usb connection.

There is a difference between the two.
