Default kubuntu vs cups, shared printers aren't.

Greetings folks;

This box, a 32 bit pclos install, claims that cups is sharing all my
printers.

But since I re-installed Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS on my milling machines box I
can't see or use the printers from that box.

What is the exact syntax to query for available printers on the local
network?

lpinfo either returns nothing or a syntax error, while this box claims they
are shared.

This did work flawlessly when that box had kubuntu 6.06 LTS on it.

Any clues?

Thanks.

After a number of decimal places, nobody gives a damn.

still, $ lpinfo -v should give you a complete listing.

Have you changed /etc/cups/cupsd.conf?
Check if your machine is listening with # netstat -ptln | grep cups

/usr/sbin/lpinfo: no such file or directory
But:
root@shop:~# ls -l /usr/sbin/lpinfo
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9444 2010-11-02 13:57 /usr/sbin/lpinfo

so that is a funkity error msg IMO.

[root@coyote cups]# netstat -ptln | grep cups
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:631 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2382/cupsd
tcp 0 0 :::631 :::* LISTEN 2382/cups

I have only a limited clue as to what that is telling me. Good/Bad?

Thanks

It's telling you that the cups daemon is running and listening for
connections on TCP port 631.
Thats good. :-)
