hi I am the mantainer of 'printtool' brief history: printtool was the GUI tool that Red Hat had developed for easy printer configurations ; it was then ~2000 adopted by the GNULpr project at http://lpr.sourceforge.net/ ; but, after the doc-com crisis, the project was eventually abandoned. Currently I mantain some code that came out of lpr.sf.net , and keep it alive: in particular, I use and appreciate 'gpr' , and I have developed the code (lately I added support for CUPS). But I think that 'printtool' has outlived its usefullness: its database of printers (that is actually contained in the package 'printfilters-ppd', for some strange reason) is outdated; and Debian ships many tools to configure printing (foomatic-gui , gnome-cups-manager , just to name two) , that work well and have up-to-date printer databases. If nobody is interested in 'printtool', I will ask for its removal from archive. a.
