I'm having some difficulty setting up my Dell Laser Printer 1100 under
Kubuntu, as well as using printconf, which leaves me with this error:
$ sudo printconf
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (!prev): 0x0816e838 ***
Unable to read printer database. Please ensure the "foomatic-db"
package is installed properly.
Google says this is due to a bug in foomatic, fixed in a release from
May. Only the old version is available from the Dapper repositories,
though. Will the version in the repository be updated shortly, or must
I seek other ways to resolve this issue?
