You appear to have just filed two new bug reports for what should've been
follow-ups to an existing bug. Please send your correspondence about this
bug to 400873@bugs.debian.org, not to submit@bugs.debian.org.

Your bugs were also filed without a suitable title, which makes them
unlikely to be looked at by anyone with the relevant knowledge. I've set a
title now.

I myself have no Samsung printers and no idea what questions to ask to help
diagnose this problem. My own USB printer works just fine with 2.6.22.

Kubuntu doesn't use any Debian kernel packages.

I also know nothing about kdeprint, but if this is a question of a
particular userspace application not being able to talk to the printer, you
should verify whether the problem exists with other printing interfaces
(such as using lpr from cupsys-bsd for direct commandline printing). Given
that USB printers on the whole don't appear to be broken with 2.6.22, this
could indeed be a kaffeine/kde bug and not a kernel bug at all.

Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
