[K12OSN] Printing bug and workaround on Fedora 15 LTSP deployment

- Printing to an LTSP terminal resulted in no output on the printer.

- The cups admin web page showed that a job was submitted, but wasn't 
able to print due to the printer being busy.

- Running /usr/sbin/jetpipe from a shell on the LTSP terminal gave the 
error message:

bash-4.1# /usr/sbin/jetpipe /dev/usblp0 9100
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/sbin/jetpipe", line 45, in <module>
     import daemon
ImportError: No module named daemon


I searched the web a bit and ran across James Linder's 'improved' 
jetpipe post at


I did a quick make and then a

cp -i /home/kent/p910nd/p910nd /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/sbin/jetpipe

rebooted the terminal and printing worked perfectly.

The Fedora 15 installation is using a Fedora 14 chroot per this post:
