different computers in exactly the same way means either that I am
doing something wrong in exactly the same way, or that there is

the values of the name, location, and description for this device?
Alternatively, what would the line be to accomplish the addition of
this printer using lpadmin, please? If I'm doing this right, I'll
just build CUPS from the port, but I'd be willing to bet I'm doing
