Hi Head-on-a-stick, I did run

sudo aptitude install cups

I still got the printer install error.

tknomanzr, I installed cups as per

sudo apt-get install cups

With all due respect, you did not get the "printer install error" -- my command does exactly the same thing as tknomanzr's command...

I'll leave you to it then.

Yeah, I was typing on my phone so couldn't be bothered trying to code tag for the sake of two lines.

OT: Why gksu for the second rather than sudo? I use sudo here, and haven't ever used gksu I don't think. /me wonders what I've been doing wrong all this time  smile
