I have. It looks nice and makes the impression KDE can use lprng.
I lost my patience and installed lprng. You can't imagine how rough that
I am on a Gentoo machine. In the installation configuration cups is
mandatory. I had to remove it and then reinstall many packages that used it.
Eventually when I print a test page I get errors:
/usr/bin/lpr -P 'Epson' '-#1'
'/usr/kde/3.3/share/apps/kdeprint/testprint.ps' : execution failed with
Status Information, attempt 1 of 3: sending job 'root at harellaptop+313'

'^BEpson' to Epson at localhost error msg: 'spool queue for 'epson' does
not exist on server harellaptop' error msg: 'check for correct printer
name or you may need to run' error msg: ''checkpc -f' to create queue'
The funny thing is that the printer is defined as samba and if you look
at the properties you see in the interface a uri definition:
User domain printer
where is the printcap anyway with such definitions?
