Re: Printing with Cups not working sometimes

First, this has absolutely nothing to do with KDE at all.
Yes and no, perhaps. I had a fully functioning CUPS installation with
Karolina's debs on my Desktop machine and Ralf's on the Laptop (thanks
to both!). Being an "early adopter" I am very satisfied with KDE 3.1.
SID so far. Nevertheless, something these days trashed my CUPS
completely. I didn't care to got to the CUPS NG yet but so far my
somewhat matured knowledge and experience in getting CUPS to run again
after an upgrade has failed me. May be that the culprit is a parallel
libcups or driver upgrade in SID.
Strange thing is that the driver and URI are not displayed in the
Information tab of the KDE Printing Manager and KDE does not accept and
transfer them when I reinstall the printer via KUPS although it suggests
the relevant settings to begin with and seems to accept them alright.
Perhaps a permission thing (although I touched nothing during the switch
from Karonina's debs to SID), but in CUPS proper I can at least print a
test page from the web interface. OTOH, the CUPS test page gets stuck in
/var/spool/cups and nothing mroe happens.
Instead of caring much about it I got used top waiting a few days;
sometimes a libcups update or a new gimp print driver version solved the
My two Eurocents.
