Re: [SOLVED -- I think] Enable printer wierdness ??



Hi Karn and Anne;

I failed to input a location; at the moment there is only one location.
When I re-set my printer using CUPS:631 last night I input a location,
now it seems to work properly.  I am really sorry for taking up your
time unnecessarily.  Working late at night and succumbing to frustration
is my only excuse.
