ok. dsl is great - i've used it since the beginning, and each time a try a new (full or mini) distro, i switch back.
here's the problem. trying to get my samsung laser printer working. that means i need new drivers. every package i try to add - cups or anything print related, gets stuck on libpaper1
dpkg error 1... and it wont configure, and then i can't install anything dependent on that, and am stuck with no printer.
i've tried seemingly every option in apt-get and dpkg, installing and re-installing, forcing every option, ignoring faults... to no avail.
any ideas on how i can get libpaper1 working? "dpkg reported error 1" doesn't really tell me much about why it fails.
