I still cannot print, it's been several days and I still cannot get cups
to work at all. When I try to reinstall lprng, apt wants to remove
"samba samba-common smbclient smbfs swat" along with cups... Setting
those packages to "hold" doesn't help. Anyone have ANY suggestions on
how to get things working again? BTW, why did cups replace lprng? From
what I've seen, cups is a piece of sh*t where lprng was rock solid.
