now I have the most painless upgrade I have ever done two commands and restart X yeah yeah yeah and yeah again. Ubuntu and his brother Kubuntu have just made things so nice now if I could just get the printer to be seen by the network....

Printer attached to a PC running Ubuntu Hoary? Piece of cake Wink

Code:
sudo vi /etc/cups/cupsd-browsing.conf


Change
Code:
Browsing Off
to
Code:
Browsing On
. Add
Code:
BrowseAllow @LOCAL
on a new line, and save. Restart CUPS and all the other CUPS printers on the local network will start to see the printer attached to your CUPS server. (Within 30 seconds or so.)

Want to share the printer with Windows PCs?
Code:
sudo apt-get install samba
,
Code:
sudo vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
and find the [global] section

Uncomment the
Code:
printing = cups
and
Code:
printcap name = cups
lines. Look for the [printers] section, and change
Code:
browseable = no
to
Code:
browseable = yes
.

Save and exit.

Wait 60 seconds for Samba to re-read the configuration file (or sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart for the impatient), and you should be able to see the printers that are configured in CUPS on the Linux box.

You might be able to skip the Samba part and just use IPP to talk to the CUPS printer from the Windows PCs. I've never done that, so tend to stick to Ye Olde Traditionale Methode and throw Samba into the mix. And, hey, now I got a file server too!

Anyway, hope it helps.

I have changed to Ubuntu and I now have my ATI Radeon 9700pro working in 3D! I.e. Fast rendering.

It's worth giving this distro a go. 10/10
