Re: CUPS configuration


Reading this thread I decided to give a try to CUPS and I've managed to 
configure my printer (HP Deskjet 722C connected to a Win2K PC on LAN).  
Anyway, I'm not able to print because I need to specify the Username and 
Password, but I can't find any way of doing this.  Could anyone please give 
me a hand on this one?

Also, how can I make other programs "see" the printer and let them print from 
it? Opera and KDE don't detect it..

Thanks for yout help
