I am, once again, abandoning my attempt to use my linux server to share my HP Deskjet 880c among the Windows computers in my house. I find CUPS, the common unix printing system ( trademarked by “Easy Software”), uncommonly unintuitive and impenetrable. Or, if not CUPS itself, then the way it is deployed on Ubuntu/Debian.
Maybe the next time I experience a trancendent state of bliss I’ll try setting it up again. For now though, I don’t need the aggravation.
