can you print test pages from CUPS (that is the name of the printing system, which is not part of KDE)? To test, use a browser and point it to http://localhost:631/printers/ and then click on the "Print Test Page" link of your printer.

Does it print? If so, the CUPS installation is OK. If not, KDE can't do anything to fix it. Fixing CUPS must be done outside of KDE.

Please also give me the output of the commands I asked for. Here is a step by step procedure, if you run KDE:

 * Keyboard combination [alt]+[f2]
 * Type "konsole", click "Run"
 * Don't be afraid if it is all black :-)  [it may be a different color on Mepis, dunno]
 * This is a command interface

Now type these commands (each line is another one), and copy the output to a place where you can save it (or directly into your mail program). I'm assuming the name of your printer is still 'homeprinter':

  lpstat -r                      

If that last command fails, the next ones will not complete either.

  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
