Actually, usually just do make install clean and do the default thing.
If I remember correctly, there was no configuration screen.
I did a little chinking and decided that the best way to install CUPS
was to only install cups-base place the ppd file in the cups/ppd
directory and add the printer. Bingo - it all works fine.
For gnome - who needs all that complicated windows stuff anyway? I use
fluxbox and am quite happy with that. Just stick to the British army
motto: KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid!
Thanks for your input.
