Ok, got rid of all remnants of a cups printer setup
and went to Https://localhost:631/admin and I'm still
having trouble selecting the proper backend. I chose
SCSI this time just to try it and got
"/usr/lib/cups/backend/ipp failed" using 
Device URI: ipp://
For the local printer setup with localhost does the
backend have anything to do with the linksys wifi
card. I've seen where it said to use ports 4010, 4020
and 4030 for linksys and I don't know if that refers
to the wifi card or their router. Can you clear this
up for me. Some of the Device URI's listed are:
Backend Error Handler, Hal Printing Backend,
IPP(http), IPP(ipp), LPT#1 and #2, SCSI printer and
Windows printer via samba. This confuses me since I
have a usb printer and cups or kde add printer wizard
used to have a listing for a usb printer. From your
email, I gather you are using LPT#1 or 2. Some
guidance and comments on this and I may be able to
setup a local printer. Or maybe I should just give up
on localhost and use the add printer wizard which you
don't ahve any experience with. BION, I have used both
methods successfuly on this and previous Epson
printers but not now since they've changed a few
things. Help!
