I have /home on  a separate partition from my system and when I upgraded i simply reformatted the system partition and reinstalled. When you do this you create a new user, which might be the same username and password as you used on the old install, but as far as the system is concerned is different.  Consequently your new login can not access the .XXXXXX configuration files on /home.

Thanks to nelz at linuxformat.co.uk for spotting this.  The solution is to run in the terminal:
    sudo chown -R username: ~username

Where username is the username you login with after a restart.  You
should reboot after doing this.

I can now print multiple docs to both printers on my Edimax printserver,
provided I go into the print queue and cancel the document when it has
come off the printer.  So I am Now back to where I was with Gutsy

Hope this helps

Andy
