Anyone else running into this?

If I run kprinter and switch to using the CUPS print system I get the following error:

There was an error loading kdeprint_cups.The diagnostic

ld.so.1: kprinter: fatal: relocation error:
file /usr/lib/libcups.so.2: symbol main: referenced symbol
not found

Permissions on the relevant library (and related) files are:

-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     other      434677 Apr 21 12:25 /usr/lib/libcups.so.2
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     other        1797 Apr 20 15:06 /usr/local/kde322/lib/kde3/kdeprint_cups.la
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     other     3416418 Apr 20 15:06 /usr/local/kde322/lib/kde3/kdeprint_cups.so

I originally had CUP 1.1.18 installed but I installed CUPS 1.1.20 over that before ever trying to get KDE 3.2.2 to work. I also rebuilt Qt after installing CUPS 1.1.20. Should I give 1.1.19 a try?

FYI, I have KDE 3.1.1 installed on the system and several people are using it right now. Could there be a shared library issue?

Thanks in advance!
