I've been running *kbuntu 5.10 breezy *on an old PIII for a while but 
have now moved to the 64-bit version on my new AMD-64 PC. On the old 
(32-bit) system my printer (Samsung ML-1710P, parallel port) works 
perfectly (with the kbuntu drivers). On the new (64 bit) system, 
k-printer finds the printer and identifies it correctly, just as before, 
but there it stops. The test page doesn't print. I've tried changing the 
(.ppd) driver file but that doen't make any diference. My Samsung 
printer and 64-kubuntu aren't talking. Any ideas?
