HMM I tried to submit a bug report Alas it wouldn't go through as I couldn't get it to accept the hpilp-base and hpilp-data packages as Valid Ubuntu packages.

even copying and pasting the package name from synaptic didn't work!
So it wouldn't accept the bug report because of an Invalid field!

Seems strange as this is a basic install supported set of packages!

It seems trying to submit a bug report is more difficult than compiling a package yourself. This is counterproductive if they want the bug reports from new users/companies migrating from other systems.

Maybe I'll write an article and put it on my website....I used to do this for UnixOS2 items

Is writing a Wiki article easier? I haven't done that yet either, On OS/2 I used to place links to articles I wrote on prominent OS/2 sites and place the article on my own domain space, As of yet I've been too busy migrating all our systems to Ubuntu to get involved much.
