[debian-knoppix] Re: Knoppix Printing?


Knoppix uses 'cups' printing by default - which is very easy to control
thru kde's control panel - I use lprng, because i am old fashioned, and
have other systems set up to access the printer.

Knoppix may have already sniffed out your printer for you - otherwise
just enter the info thru KDE.

One gotcha i found with KDE's printer setup is that it offered me
/dev/lp1 as my lpt port - linux really wants /dev/lp0 if you are
printing to the first parallel port.

Otherwise, cups or lprng  are easy to set up with KDE.

I sometimes used to use an english accent to impress gals - but not
often since i got out of hi school.  I am the guy who brings the free
books and passes out the tickets for the doorprizes.  Also have a
habit of wearing hawaiian shirts when the weather is warmer.

Among cluebies, I am one of the louder proponents of knoppix; best
distro since yggdrasil - although the most used hdd for my laptop
still boots mandrake. (only because it is totally tweaked, and I am too
busy / lazy to replace it)
