Yesterday for the third or fourth time I ran into this annoying KDE<--->CUPS bug in that my printer that used to work fine, no longer reacts on print jobs (these stayed queued) and 127.0.0.1:631 gives a 404 not found error instead of CUPS config page.
The previous times I could only solve this problem by re-installing my whole Pardus OS.
However now I was up and running again and had already finetuned my Pardus, I do not want to re-install it agaian.
Is there a quick solution for this remaining bug?
I noticed after a Google search that it is a more general problem already since 2006!
KDEPrint is not mutually compatible with newer versions of CUPS and KDEPrint as a project is not maintained very intense anymore.
This then is a major issue for all KDE Linux distro's I guess.
Now "we" are working on Pardus 2008, wouldn't it be usefull to implement a TASMA configuration part based on the CUPS API itself instead of based at the KDEPrint thing? The latter lacks compatability.
Maybe a nice idea for the Google Summer of Code contest?
Building a new and compatible CUPS API interface for KDE distro's?
Read this: "Help! KDEPrint on KDE-3.x will break with CUPS-1.2 (or with 1.3 at the latest)!"
