Yes, I have all those packages installed, along with the 2 gimpprint
packages. I've gotten to the point now where I realize that the client
machine 'discovers' the printer on the other machine without me doing
anything - and that does in fact happen on the client. But like I said
in my other post, I need to get back to a default CUPS install on the
client to undo my other attempts/mistakes....and go from there.
