Debian and its clones A few months later than expected, Debian 5 has finally arrived with a bundle of new goodies: Java is finally in the Debian repositories thanks to IcedTea and OpenJDK; Firefox (rebranded as Iceweasel) is now at 3.0; and official live images are ready for our downloading pleasure. TuxRadar has a detailed look at Lenny along with an explanation from Steve McIntyre, the Debian Project Leader, on why it was delayed. Earlier this week, we already detailed the new features in Lenny.

The computer is my slave, I am not a slave to the computer, I expect the printer to work.

Over the years I have tried to get it to work.(Me being a slave to the computer).

You know what it was painless. I googled found relevant links telling capt this compatible driver that. I did it, it didn't work. I clicked print. Nothing happened. I turned off or reboot the PC, a blank page got fed through the printer.

Why? My programming skills at best is creating a calculator program with complex numbers.

Ahh stuff it, I am not going to type anymore about it.

Everything you need to know to get printing working in CUPS ... and whether or not it's even worth attempting, based on the printer model.
