Well, I tried a purge and reinstall of cups on my server.

This is one of the many problems I'm seeing.
I finally got it.

And it was brain dead simple.

After I removed the rouge libraries...

Thank you so much everyone who was willing to put up with me and my "issues". :)

I hate this. It's always simple when you're looking back. I just didn't do a dutiful enough job stripping out all the little lost libs.

The one that I ran into didn't have any dependencies or conflicts or anything. It was a little hard to chase down the exact name of at first, dselect didn't show it at all.

But, I can print from Mozilla, OpenOffice, and lpr.
GIMP gives me a stair-case postscript goo.
gv gives me good text

I probably need the printer driver for gimp installed.
Is that on the client and not the server?

I'd guess it goes on the X client.
Probably need cupsys-driver-gimpprint.

dpkg -p cupsys-driver-gimpprint
