Hi Bob,

I tried web interface as root and normal user, I tried running gnome-
cups-manager, I even tried running lpadmin. It either says in the cups
log file I am not authorized or I get that weird "entity too large"
message. Ugh this is maddening. Is there a non-cups method to get
printing setup I could try?
