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
