No, running Hardy Kubuntu so to bring up a terminal is System -> Konsole or
just click on the little black screen in the quick launch menu!

that command is still running I guess this morning; it now says "installing
printer database" which is a line more than it said at 10 o'clock last night!
So it seems progress is being made albeit slowly!!

Turboprint has been there since March I think but something in it must have
broken. It can no longer find the printer. If I could get apt-get remove
turboprint to work or even synaptic to come up perhaps I could remove
turboprint and start over. As it is, it seems the only thing I can do it
wait some more till dpkg --configure -a eventually finishes since it seems to
be still doing something. Never had anything Kubuntu take so long to work

Sure! At least the rest of this computer is working to receive mail and send
it! Firefox works also so I'm not stuck with a dead computer!
