Re: gnome-cups-manager and Canon BJC-250
Thank you for your answer.
I followed your suggestion. The web interface was easy to use.
I deleted previous printer configuration.
Added it once again.
This time the device was properly pointed to /dev/lp0.
I printed a test page.
The job appeared in job list as cancelled.
When I restared the job, in the Jobs page, I got this message:
I use the stable version of Sarge.
It can't be that hard. There must be something simple that's missing.
