It looks like xprint is dying silently on startup. It's not found

I just said heck with it and downgraded to 1.6, WTF do
I need to run two seperate print daemons? Fsck me gently
with a chainsaw, but between that and getting rid of Postscript

(And 99.5% of the time I agree with their decisions.)

Bah, it prints and browses webpages. Thats all I need it to do.
