    Firstly install CUPS
    Code:
    emerge cups
    once that's done add it te the default runlevel:
    Code:
    rc-update add cupsd default
    and then open up a web browser, and go to http://localhost:631 and from there add a printer....

    make sure you have cupsd running before you go to it:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/cupsd start
    and then go to http://localhost:631

    if you changed the name of your computer (in my case, calling it dave), then replace localhost with the name of your computer.
    Code:
    user@localhost
    is how it normally looks.
    mine is:
    Code:
    user@dave
    hope that clears things up
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    whatever you want, you can call your printer "sexy beast", have it in "my bed" and describe it as "hot sexy printer"....whatever you want.

    Error:

    The printer name may only contain up to 127 printable characters and may not contain spaces.
