have you tested with KDE 3.5.5 already? 

Also, it is a well known fact that early versions of Kubuntu Dapper shipped with b0rken CUPS and KDEPrint packages. Please check that you have upgraded to the newest versions (run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade").

In any case, this is not a KDEPrint bug (but we will try to help you, if you respond), the message "client-error-not-possible" is generated by CUPS.

According to RFC 3196 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3196.txt): 
      "client-error-not-possible: The request cannot be carried out 
       because of the state of the system."

An example for this could be that the CUPS printqueue (note: that is *not* the physical printer) is not accepting any requests (due to administrative setting to "disabled", or auto-setting to disabled by a CUPS backend which was erring when trying to contact the physical printer).

Should the problem persist after an upgrade, then please tell us the output of the following commands:

  lpstat -p homeprinter
  lpstat -p homeprinter -l
  lpstat -o homeprinter
  lpstat -W completed -o homeprinter | tail -n 2
  lpoptions -d homeprinter
  lpoptions -d homeprinter -l


(Note: setting timeout for response by reporter to Feb 1, 2007)
