As yet no help on the old problem. In the meantime:
I have a third box in which I just installed Woody from the CD set,
went on line (DSL) an ran dist-upgrade, then configured a 2.4.18 kernel,
used apt-get to install cupsys, cupsomatic-ppd and foomatic-bin. This
box has an HP Deskjet 940c on /dev/lp0. The above packages did not
include a driver for the 940c so I downloaded two versions (old and new
cups format) from www.linuxprinting.org - neither works!
I installed and tested these drivers from localhost:631 as lpadmin and
lpstat are unknown on the system!?? lpinfo works.
I really would appreciate some help with these problems.
