a workaround: final posting since no help
WEll, I am getting absolutely no help in this forum. However, I did figure
out a work around that allows me to get prints from kde apps until such time
as the system stabilizes and things work as they should.
I can pick the printer "print to PS file" which then does not call the
kdeprintd and simply creates a postscript file selectively on my harddrive.
Then, using the debian package qtcups, I can print to a cups printer that was
set up inside of kde. Go figure it !
