Thanks for the advice.
I tried the enable command, but still no go!. It still shows the print
All the config stuff looks OK.
It is as if the print out is going to a null device. Under the KDE Print
Manager I can see a print tools which show an Epson printer with tools
to clean the jets, etc. I tried one of these and it did try and send a
command to the printer. But why does it show an Epson tools unless that
is some Linux generic desk jet tools set.
Weird problems like this make me think Linux need a few more years
before the desk top!!!
