I've the same problem...after [big] upgrade on a sid/powerpc, but where

That's completely immaterial. The 'lp' driver is just to support a
printer on a parallel port - and if you have a Mac, I doubt you have one
Possible, but the Mac OS printing configuration is nearly the same as in
For example : my Epson Stylus Photo 890 + cups (yes, it's cups in Mac OS)
modprobe hfsplus && mount -t hfsplus /dev/hda10 /macosx # /dev/hda10 for
And I can see an /etc/cups directory (with same configurations files
like in Linux), in /usr/bin I can find a cups-config binary..and so on
All what I can see in Linux :-)
OK, the binary, and the library are of course not the sames...
What does that mean? I was printing normally before the upgrade... I
after an apt-get install something_how_goes_wrong, the printing system
doesn't work anymore. And there's is no more possible configuration too.
But which package is the bad one ?
tried removing the printer via http://localhost/631 but after I can't
configure a new one...
Not possible. I always/often have made this with Mozilla before, and now
: don't work at all.
What do you mean, you can't configure a new one? If you go into "Admin",
you should be able to add a printer. How is the printer in question
attached to your computer? Serial port, USB, network?
I know a hard way of printing again, that is re-installing the whole
system. Frankly, I'm trying to avoid that.
Me too. I've tried apt-get install reinstall cupsys, cupsys-client, or
cupsys/testing, cupsys-client/testing too (and all dependancies) ...but
all's going wrong :-(
There's something broken. But what ?
Not a solution. Though it sounds like you're missing something.
It's possible, but a buggy apdate can do this too. I never had luck with
printers (for example with a fu... HP printer called HP820CXi ). So
that's the reason why I completely know the Linux printing system, and
like José, I don't know what's happening.
