Thanks for the info there Chris. I've just tried logging onto
http://littlegeek:631/printers/, and although I log on ok, I'm seeing this
error message :
"Unable to get printer status (client-error-forbidden)!"
The printer is set up ok otherwise, and I can view jobs in the queue. But
because of that error, I can't do anything.
It also warns me to use system-config-printer to edit anything.
I don't understand the error as I am logged in, but not properly ?
