Re: [vox-tech] Printing under KDE

Thanks Henry: I will try it tonight. see below:

No they are not new or exotic. One is a SOYO board and the other is a PCI card. I will go through the documentation tonight. Jonathan has volunteered to give me a hand, for which I am grateful.
Thanks, I will be in touch.

No, localhost:631 is not there. I know it has been there and working because we used cups to print a document the other night. How do I install it? Probably trashed something trying to get the network to run.

It may be on a different port. Try running 'netstat -lpt' as root and you
will get a listing of all TCP ports that are accepting connections and which
program is listening on each.

What is the relationship between CUPS and printcap file which I do not seem to have. Don't I need that?

CUPS does not use /etc/printcap at all. (That file is part of lpr, lprng,
and other traditional printing systems, which CUPS is not.) However, some
applications expect /etc/printcap to be there and use information from it.

BTW: Response, Not my idea, the installfest guys were trying to solve a network problem which remains. Are you any good at debugging why two nic cards do not seem to work together on a machine?

Are they the same chipset or different chipsets? Are they common cards or
very new/exotic? In that case getting a driver directly from the
manufacturer or from the driver developers may be necessary. What does dmesg

P.S. If you still want help from LERT please don't hesitate to mail
