Thanks. OK I will give tomorrow a second try via the working

that printed page under installation was the only one working...

not sure this is the proper NG but I couldn't find any CUPS related NG
I do have a strange issue with my wrong configuration for sure!
I have a printer (HP LaserJet1100) connected to my SMC7404WBRA printer
connector. The only working way I get something on the printer was
CUPS by using KDE print manager from utilities menu, selecting Remote
LPD queue with the IP of the router (mine was 192.168.2.1), then the
name of the queue (LPT1).
Following the wizard I selected the proper printer I guess here some
extract from the content of the file named
HPLaserJet1100(CUPSv1.1.x).ppd in /etc/cups/ppd :
FWIW I've never managed to setup printing using the KDE print manager;
I've found the CUPS web interface much more reliable.
In your browser address bar type:
which will take you to a GUI setup for printers
You will either need to log in as root ro add yourself to the lpadmin
