I tried to install a printer using printtool in the kde control-panel. got 
error program not found. Please install the LPRngTool package.
I searched the cd's 1,2 and powertools but cant find it
checked MD5SUM's for CD's and they are OK

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Do a full install and try to configure a printer

Comment 1 Marcel van Groenigen 2001-02-06 23:19:35 UTC
OK... seems this version of redhat is using an other print filter/config 


ln /usr/sbin/printconf-gui /usr/bin/lprngtool

and you can at least start something from the KDE contol panel to configure a 
printer. (Gnome has no print config .....? )

but it is still incomplete
the smbprint, jetdirectprint and ncpprint are missing from the 
/usr/lib/rhs/printconf directory.
you can get them out of the source rpm 

now i can print from shell but kde only sees some :lp= printer so cant print 
anything from there.. any hints how to solve/where to configure this ?

related words: printconf, LPRING, EOF, printtool
related bugs: 25445, 25870, 26082, 26441, 26996.

After browsing the above bug reports, I have succeeded in configuring
and getting normal printing fundtions:

1) I verified that prctl, printconf, printconf-gui and ghostscript were

2) Using SysV-Init Editor from the KDE Control Panel, I dragged lpd to Runlevel
3, No.11.

2) Reboot, then from a console I did:
	# /usr/sbin/printconf-gui.
	...selected "new", and "created" lp0
	"Edit" invoked the list of drivers, and designated my Epson Stylus to use

3) In konqueror, changed /dev/lp0 to rw, rw, rw (default was rw,rw)

	I am now able to print text and graphics!
Not the most elegant solution, but hey! *I* AM a newbie!  ;-)

This is fixed (and was a 'kontrol-panel' bug)
