    Default equivalent of windows printer manager ?


    Hi folks,

    I have some trouble with the Konica Minolta C350 that I use through
    network at my working place.
    I finally managed to install it, by putting "by hand" old files found
    on the konica_Minolta site at the required place and using the cups
    http://localhost:631 interface to configure the queue (the KDE mechanism
    was always resetting when I wanted to add that printer through ipp).
    Sometimes my documents print OK, some times not.

    I would like to now whether there is in OpenSuse 11.1 x86-64 (kde 4.2)
    something like the print job manager of windows that would allow me to
    get the error diagnostic, stop the queue, restart the queue, etc... (the
    kde4-printer-applet does not seem to be able to stop/restart the queue).

    The module is kdeprint 'KDEPrint Homepage - KDEPrint Printing System'
    (http://printing.kde.org/)
    But it hasn't been ported to kde4 yet but you should be able to use the
    kde3 version
    Though i haven't tried it

    /Geoff

    Thanks for the reply.
    I tried to find kdeprint in Yast and in the opensuse build service for
    11.1 before but got no answer. Furthermore, when I try kdeprint in
    kicker I get only Kdeprint/fax which does not seem to be what I need.
    So the web site is a good starting point for me.
    I could find 3 interesting scripts in the download section of the
    KDEprint site.
    However, considering the dates (2002...) given for the news, I'd rather
    stick to the cups http://localhost:631 interface for the moment, until I
    see a kde4.x version of the full kdeprint.
