Default printer configuration problems

Tried that just now and it failed with cups server errors. Turns out the init script for cups isn't working properly. If I start it with /etc/init.d/cups it appears to start and a process shows up but doesn't work properly. If I just run 'sudo cupsd' from the console, it loads and works fine. Happily printing now. I'll have to troubleshoot the init script when I have time to find the problem.
