iMac on my Lan can't see my printer connected via usb to my linux box
years ago, I had no trouble printing from a Mac on my lan
to printer connected to my linux box.
now, I can't seem to do it.
F14 using NetworkManager
static ip 192.168.2.8
iMac dhcp 192.168.2.100
again, years ago I sometimes added to the cupsd.conf:
which enabled other computers on the lan to print.
Since then I haven't tried to modify cupsd.conf--
it seems the modern version is far more complex.
Maybe not even intended that users should
directly modify it?

I tried this,
I think followed by
# /sbin/service cups restart
but the iMac still can't see the printer
My F14 /etc/hosts has only the two localhost lines.
Do I need more here?
More on the iMac?
thanks for advice
