I have installed Debian "squeeze". My mature machine works much better now than with Ubuntu, which was causing screen scrolling to work poorly - very poorly in many cases. I used a DVD included in the latest Lunux PRO magazine. Oddly, installing more programs is requiring the insertion of the installation disc. For example, Midnight Commader required it. But I get it done. But, I can't get my printer identified. CUPS can't FIND it, and refuses me the ability to locate and ADD -- because it says I fail to give a proper username and password. I have two passwords, one that opens big doors -- including Terminal as ""root@mycomputername:/home/myfirstname#"" . The other opens a session for me at boot time among other tasks. But CUPS wants some username and password of which I am obviously not privy. Where could I find what it wants? Where are usernames stored, anyway? Can I find them via Terminal? Minus this problem, I'm a happy camper and intend to stay with Debian. It sounds so grown-up, you know. :) Larry PS I have Linux PRO magazines to give away. They are mostly beyond my forseeable needs. I'll bring them to the next meeting. ------------------------------------ The Juneau Linux Users Group -- http://www.juneau-lug.org This is the Juneau-LUG mailing list.
