I'll give it one last try.
After three attempts to get help from this list or kde.org without results,
I'm about ready to switch to gnome.
I am UNABLE to print from ANY KDE application (kmail, kate, kword). BUT, I am
able to print from non-kde apps (abiword, firefox) without problems.
I have two printers, an Epson Stylus Photo 2200 and a Brother HL-1440. These
are connected to a 2port network print server (Netgear PS110).
Original configuration was using system-config-printer with both printers set
up as lpr queues. Both printers work properly in command line and under
gnome but not under kde apps.
I keep getting the message "The MIME type application/postscript is not
supported as input of the filter chain. Do you want KDE to convert the file
to a supported format?". This never happened under kde 3.2 versions.
No matter what I try, it will not print. Why is kde sending it out as
postscript to the filters? I need to print many documents and email messages
and am getting fed up with cut and paste into an abiword document in order to
