After much tussling with getting cups and OO to work on my laptop (via the sourc files).
Someone suggested cups.dsl, installed that. But when I came to start cupsd, my USB mouse locked?!
When I leave X i get various errors saying it want possible to reassing an address to a device?
Anyone else had this?
Moved the printer to the primary USB hub on my box (onboard) and used a PS/2 mouse. Cupsd started happily and I could get to the admin screen. The USB mouse worked if I went back out of X and redid xsetup.sh.
To double check I rebooted the box (with USB mouse back in), upon starting cupsd, the mouse locked again
Also, I can only assume to save space, most of the printers arent listed. Ive copied over the .ppd fie for my laser printer which is working on the laptop (apt-get install of CUPS). The printer is listed and I can setup it up in cups admin, but it wont print a test page. Is there another driver file/s I'm missing?
[note]I'm using a HDD install.
