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

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
2) Reboot, then from a console I did:
...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)
