Yesterday, when setting up my printer, I ran into a problem, but thankfully I found a way around it. When I installed Waldorf and was going through the cb-welcome routine, I said yes to installing printing support. But when using said printer installation program, it hung when I hit "Apply" when trying to finish the installation, and would hang every time. BTW, I didn't see anything about this on Debian's forums.
But thankfully, I also knew about opening a web browser and going to "localhost:631", and installing the printer that way, which did the trick. Obviously, the Debian devs need to know about this. Also, what's the point of making it a prerequisite to set a password for the root account and then logging in with that account just to install a printer? Shouldn't sudo suffice? Also, is there any way to change those permission settings?
Like I said, I found a way around it entirely on my own, but IMHO, printer installation shouldn't involve jumping through so many hoops -- doesn't make sense to me.
Just who is General Failure and what's he doing reading my hard drive?
