7.3 Ximian Configuring Cups

If the installer did not select the Cups subsystem when Ximian is installed, the XD cannot manipulate the printing subsystem. Cups must be configured.

As root (with a current X display), run:

# /usr/bin/redhat-switch-printer CUPS, and then fix the services:
# service lpd stop
# service cups start
# chkconfig cups on
Now you can configure the printer in Cups:
# /usr/bin/cupsconfig

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
