Re: Where does Mozilla get its list of printers?



AFAICT, mozilla uses the Xprint system.  See the xprt-xprintorg package,
or xprint.mozdev.org.  Basically, Xprint is like the X11 protocol
implemented for printers.  The xprt server accepts (AFACT) the standard
X11 protocol, and the :64 is the X11 display number that mozilla wants
to send the X11 commands to.  The "@" I guess means that it's served at
localhost (or thinks it is).  But I have no idea where it got
"huffalump" from.

P.S. you'll need to read (some of) the docs in xprt-xprintorg to get it
to work properly.
