This fixes local printing. But network printing is broken by docs. The docs say that cups servers broadcast info about their printers, but in the default config they do not and they don't listen for other boxes wanting to print. Of course, this is the sane way. Services should be locked down unless explicitly opened, but the docs don't mention this at all and there's AFAIK no task-based piece of documentation explaining how to do it. /Rasmus Wiman -- gentoo-desktop@g.o mailing list
