No, thanks for asking, I took it off using synaptic (also took over10 hours to
do that),tried reinstalling, same deal. However, after the install process
and the initial setup which each step took over an hour to do, the laptop
heated up to like 84 C where normally it runs at about 50 C. Checking with
top showed python taking 100 percent of CPU time. So does Turboprint use
python somewhere? And why doesn't the bad script get deleted when Turbopint
is removed? Or is it CUPS messing up somewhere?
