Either that or I'm missing posts. My first message in this thread is a reply.
And while we're on this topic anyway, I've found that I *don't* actually like
the KDE printer installer wizard flummy. I can't quite remember specific
details about what it couldn't do with it, but it was missing some critical
piece to getting an HP inkjet to work on an Ubuntu system. Ubuntu's CUPS web
interface is hacked because they deem it too dangerous. I didn't manage to
get where I needed to be with either the KDE configurator or the suggested
GNOME configurator, so I had to spend an afternoon de-hacking the CUPS thing
so I could spend twelve and a half seconds configuring the bliffin' printer
