Ah, OK.  I'd guess that it's always been a 'G' since the printer was
installed, then.  I wasn't sure if it was some kind of error display, but it
seems not.

Indeed.  I suspect that further questions and/or a visit will be in order.

Since it looks as if Gutenprint isn't showing an error on the iconbar as
first suspected, further questions on this list are probably off-topic.

I did use PrintSpool on the machine initially, but can't remember if I left
it installed.  I'll try and follow those ideas up, though.

Thanks for the help!
