Cups getting tired
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Im having a headache about cups configuration.
Either i'm plain stupid or cups should rather be called cups-beta.
First of all my situation:
Using Debian SID on my workstation and WOODY on my little file,print and
webserver with a canon s400 The printer is detected and OK.
Now im trying to setup cups on the server the packages i got installed for
and all resulting dependancies.
Now to the problems:

the debian-kde list but i assume some of the people there are reading this

i can't print test pages to the server and i can't remove the configured
printer! the remove button is inactive so everytime i install it again my
collection of non-funktioning printers grows.
If someone knows a solution for this please tell me or let's exchange cups
config files for checking and comparing otherwise im gonna start to learn ten
different programming languages tomorrow and read 150 manuals over the
christmas holidays ;-).
Btw. it worked on another machine (same setup exept using SID instead of
