Okay, lets try something here. If you have an internet connection, open Synaptic, and hit reload, then apply. This will bring you up to speed with all the latest packages. Next go to 'custom button' (bottom left side of Synaptic) and look for task 'printing'. Once you have everything installed (which I may have taken out to save some space on the iso), then hit the Blue wheel with tools on it in the 'taskbar or kicker' of your desktop. Go back in and try to reconfigure your printer and see if you can get it right. If you have the wrong model number, or if CUPS isn't right, then there's no spooling to the printer from the pc.
Hope this helps.
Anyone else with suggestions?
