your mention of the CUPS print driver is quite interesting, in relation
I currently have a thread on the Debian Users list, asking why a Debian
5 clean install, and, two separate Ubuntu 8.04 installations (one on
the laptop, with the Dbian 5 clean install, and, one on this desktop,
with this Debian upgrade 4 -> 5), automatically installed the CLP-300,
without me having to do anything, apart from physically connecting the
printer, yet the Debian 4 -> 5 upgrade resultant system, will not allow
the installation of the printer.
The only response that involved a fix (sounds a bit like a bandaid fix),
so far, avoids using both the foomatic-gui printers manager and the
System -> Administration -> Printing utilities, and, suggests instead
using the CUPS facility at a URL.
The comparative printing that I had done, was via the Ubuntu 8.04
printing, and I have no idea as to what manages the printing in that, as
I did not have to do anything, to get the printer going, other than
physically connecting it, and turning on the power switch.
"Black Box printing" !
