    I'm sure some grandmas could do this. It's just a matter of how much they need to do it, and to what degree of "inconvenience" they'll tolerate in order to obtain the functionality.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Cups-PDF

    I am attempting to follow the guide. When I get to Step 2 of 2rinter Driver, nothing shows up. Nothing in the dropdown for manufacturer or driver. I had previously installed a network printer through samba (brother mfc-8300),

    Anyone have an idea how to get the default drivers to show?

    Thank you worked like a dream on a fresh install of dapper.

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.

    In the dropdown menu go to Generic and there you'll find the postscript etc rev3 printer.

    @LoKi128:

    Many thanks for this HOWTO!

    I tried installing and changing file permissions according to the CUPS-PDF website http://www.physik.uni-wuerzburg.de/~...entation.shtml but it didn't work...

    Great to have a PDF-printer again in Dapper.

    Cheers

    Re: HOWTO: Install Cups-PDF

    Nice one, but it's a bit messy. Maybe you should use the code tags and give the precise commands (like apt-get install) to make it simpler. You could also use "sudo chmod +s /usr/lib/cups/backend/cups-pdf" instead of using nautilus as suggested in the other post.
    Attached to the footprints in spring, to the Japanese song she taught me,
    vaguely, I was influenced by her happiness.
