nothing else can?
Even more important, why does mozilla have its own - usually
non-functioning - settings? Currently on the upstairs box mozilla
offers the following printers:
None of these makes any sense to me, and if I try to print I get the
usual unstoppable stream of raw postscript wasting reams of paper and
precious ink cartridges. Why do the cups printers not show up in
Mozilla? Is there a way to correct this?
Mozilla does not print. It uses xprint exclusively, that is where your
problem lies: in what X believes your printers are. But if you google
for that you'll find this has been covered lots of times in this list.
