I just got my printer set up in Linux just now (attached to a Mac Mini on my LAN, don't forget). Let's see. First I opened the Gentoo Printing Guide. Then I looked under "Setting Up a Remote Printer". Then I followed the directions word-for-word. I typed
sudo emerge -upv cups sudo emerge cups</pre>
Then I changed one line in /etc/cups/client.conf to say
Then I typed
sudo /etc/init.d/cupsd start
And then it worked. Why do people say Linux is hard to configure?
Now I can do things like
echo "hello" | lpr.
*wipes away a tear of joy*
