Hey list,

LIJIANG:/home/lover# tail -f /var/log/cups/error_log gives me the
following message.

I installed "cupsys cupsys-bsd cupsys-client foomatic-bin samba
smbclient gs-esp a2ps" and few extra packages.

We are using SHARP AR-158S printer. I can not find any driver for it in
the selection list. I googled and yahooed for PPD file as well but can
not find anything. Does this means I could not use the printer?

Can any of you give me some hint please?

Thanks,
Rocky
