Printing Resolved

The tedious problem of configuring my printer after RH 6.0 upgrade has
been resolved.

>From a console I used rpm to remove both LPR and PRINTOOL. I then
rebooted to make sure they were right out of the system. They were then
reinstalled using rpm. LPR would not install initially, complaining that
it needed RH PRINT FILTERS even though it was present. Using rpm -U
Printfilters (upgrade) seemed to work, as LPR installed ok. I can now
print from all apps as user.
