Email inquiry - Printing on Studio 13.37?
Hi l0wt3ch, I have been running my Studio 4 and Studio 13.37 usb installs quite extensively these days, accomplishing most or all of my daily work on them. Doing some recording, scoring, video editing, mail, office, document and graphic editing. A little bit of everything.

The last piece of the puzzle is printing, and although I know I may not be able to get driver compatibility 100% in CUPS, my main question is in regards to Studio 13.37. When I try to fire up the CUPS wizard the URL gives me a 404 not found. Where is the CUPS setup page? I'm still a newbie when it comes to printing in Linux, so I don't need a ground-up explanation of CUPS, but I think I will need that localhost:631 page to do it, right?

These are turning into really fun OS's.

You should probably try searching the Puppy forums. There may be more than one approach for you to try, in order to find something that works for you.

Are you saying that Slacko doesn't have localhost:631 installed? There's a menu entry for the wizard in Studio 13.37.

I just printed to a network printer at work using Studio 4 and the localhost:631 CUPS wizard, but Studio 13.37 just gives me 404 page not found.

Hate to keep bugging you, but I'm halfway to printing from both OS's and I'll never need windows again! Certainly you can appreciate my excitement.

I'm just saying that nothing printer related should be any different than the Puppy version it's based on.

I did get CUPS to work in Slacko by following RSCN's link to CUPS I installed 1.4 first then installed 1.3.3 over the top, then 1.3.1 over the top of that, because of the password running as root problem. It now works...

This stuff ROCKS.

Hi, waiting for my copy of the leet studio, but was just looking around....

localhost:631 is the same as

But "localhost" may be based on the contents of a network file,
maybe describing the address further toward the router, eg 10.0.0 x or 192.168.x.x. (there are some others...)

Looking forward to getting some thing stable to work with. Hoping I can use a hd partition for saves, I need to read more.

Thanks for your posts, very informative.

Regards Glenn

Hi GlennsPref,

Thanks for being a customer, we hope you enjoy Studio 13.37.

And, yes, you can save to a hard drive partition. :)
