Do I need to also run cupsd server? I've always run servers and
clients so never run into this problem before:
moseley@laptop:~$ lpstat -v

AFAIK, you need a cupsd on the machine that has the printer. above is
trying to connect to localhost:631 but with no cupsd, you don't have
one. I suppose it may be possible to use cupsd on another machine to
connect to a printer hosted locally, but that's beyond my abilities...
I can specify a machine that is running cupsd:
moseley@laptop:~$ lpstat -h bumby -v
device for 4ML: canon:/dev/lp0
device for AdobePDF: ipp://PowerMac.local/printers/AdobePDF
device for Stylus_Photo_870_Gutenprint: ipp://PowerMac.local/printers/Stylus_Photo_870_Gutenprint
How do I get applications to see those printers? For example, firefox
doesn't display any of those printers.
are there command line options for cupsd that would connect you to
