Hopefully this little update means something and will help:
I just tried to print from kghostview and kpdf. In both cases I got a
little popup message saying that it was "Initializing printer ..... '
Within the print dialogue I see that print.ps is recognized and that
things supposedly are pointing by way of localhost:631. However nothing
happens and I need to kill things with the <Ctrl-Alt-Esc> combo. This
happens only within KDE.
So, still looking for ideas.
