I'm running (K)Ubuntu Dapper (i.e. both GNOME and KDE).

I'm able to print in GNOME but not in KDE.

When click on the printer applet in KDE, up pops a box reading "Unable 
to retrieve the printer list. Error message received from manager. 
Connection to CUPS server failed. Check that the CUPS server is 
correctly installed and running.  Error: Host not found".  I click on 
"administrator mode" enter my password and try again.  I get the same 

I know CUPS running earlier today in GNOME.

I've had this same problem for as long as I've been running Dapper. 
I've been running Dapper for a few weeks now.  I've tried several times 
to print from KDE and got this same error message.

It's not been a problem in GNOME.    Is there a "fix" I can use (that 
won't break printing in GNOME)?

I'll file a bug report, but I'd like some feedback first. :-)
