    Great HOWTO!

    I just posted a correction for the O'Reilly book "Ubuntu Hacks" Hack #26, "Make Your Own PDFs" citing this thread.

    You can probably share your PDF printer like any other.

    i already do that, i know because i can see that printer (PDF printer & Laserjet-1010) on another computer but just PDF printer didnt do the job. PDF printer only can print from server not client.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Cups-PDF

    I'm having a strange problem here.

    I had the cups-pdf running on Breezy and now wanted to set it up on Dapper.

    I installed the cups-pdf and and can find it in the 'backend' directory, change the permissions as required, but it still doesn't show up as a detected printer???

    Anyone have an idea or similar experience??

    Re: HOWTO: Install Cups-PDF

    OK, I found the problem. I'm having a conflict with my network printer. The printer hangs on my wife's computer (which is also Ubuntu) and I print over the cups network. If I turn that off, the pdf printer pops on. I have a vague idea how to correct this and I'll give it a shot this weekend.

    1. Install the cups-pdf package (I used version 2.2.0-1)
    2. Go to System -> Administration -> Printing
    3. Doubleclick "New Pinter"
    4. Notice that there is no mention of a CUPS PDF printer
    5. Open a terminal and tpe "sudo nautilus" and then your password
    6. Go to Filesystem -> usr -> lib -> cups -> backend
    7. Rightclick "cups-pdf" and select Properties
    8. Go to the Permissions tab and click the "Set user ID" special flag
    9. Again try to add a new printer
    10. There is now a "PDF Printer" detected, select it
    11. Select the Generic, Postscript Color Printer (Rev 3b)
    12. Give it a name, like PDF Printer
    13. Right click on the newly created printer, and select Properties
    14. Click "Print a Test Page"
    15. The file should be in your Home folder, under the PDF folder
    Yeah very simple and easy way .... However, I have a unique problem, I did not find "Printing" in the system "Administration" ... I don't have it ... Anypne can help telling me how to "Printing" in the system administration ...
    Thanks....
