That's the helluvit, it worked just a few weeks ago. I managed to get
the thing to print and it looks like pink and greyscale now. Fairly new
cartridge for color. I'm going blind on this, and royally peeved. Maybe
I should take my own advice and just install centOS to get stable. I
like the folks here, and would rather remain, but my project is ramping
up into a semblance of a reality and re-inventing the wheel isn't one of
my strong suites. I'm not a tool builder. I am a user with some modicum
of experience, so I can usually hack and slash my way around. I had
several printer selections using the same printer at different print
resolutions. They're gone. Found a bugzilla on that one. Someone else
with officially a similar problem. It used to work just fine until
someone did something and it is home to roost on my machine. Damnit. Now
it's 3:35 AM on the east coast and I keep hoping I'll fix it. I'm nuts.
I know I'm not supposed to have "expectations of others", but in this
case I do. Just print for me reliably. That's all I need, that and a
good 25 cent cigar. Ric
