Direct quote from Dutch Master: [QUOTE=Dutch Master;3497870]Install Cups, it's in the Debian repo's. Then point your browser to http://localhost:631 and log in as root if requested. Then click the 'Add printer' button and follow the steps presented. Choose the correct printer model and confirm. Next, go to the 'Printer' tab (top menu) and see if your newly added printer is named. Click on that name and try a testpage. If that works, you're ready for the real thing [/QUOTE]
For those, like me, who once believed you needed system-config-printer-gnome or system-config-printer-kde to set up a network printer.
I have a HP Photosmart C4385 wireless network printer. I installed CUPS, HP drivers and configured my printer with ease.
MS Windows 'free' for over three years and loving it

Thanks, that was very helpful!
However, I would also like to know how to use the system-config-printer-common GUI tool that is provided with Eeebuntu LXDE. Cuuld anyone tell me how to get it running. It doesn't have a .desktop file so what is the procedure then? Please forgive my ignorance, and thanks in advance!
