If it makes you feel any better, it has quit working on my PC hardware
as well in the last couple of kernels. Don't know the details,
because on that PC I also have windows, and printing still works with
windows, so I'm just using windows when I need to print. This may not
seem of much use, but it suggests that the problem is known to others
and possibly there is a patch out there or the problem is due to be
fixed soon. Or maybe someone knows a workaround. Fire up your search
