In order for the install to work, as dolphin_oracle says, the deb must be, and show, in the directory pane. You are not in the cupswrapper folder. Click the cupswrapper folder and verify the deb is shown.

Oh Crap! You are right Rich. Here I have been trying to point the command to an old Tar.gz download from before. I need to do some cleaning here. I will get the deb file and try again. Thanks.

Now, should I try to install with the printer configuration in the system or, use Cups? Thanks

There I can't help, as I've not used the MEPIS 11 printer config tool, but I would think it would work fine.

I think I am back in business. I went through the on board printer set up because that is where the proper cups driver shows up. I was able to print the test page without spitting a bunch of paper out. I tied a couple documents and regular Odt documents it is doing fine with. However, not pdf documents. I had this trouble before. I just need to remember what I did to make it print pdf documents. Thank you all.

Just had to reboot apparently. Everything appears to be back to normal. I owe you all my thanks.

I did check the box on the first comment of the thread. Should be saying solved. If not, let me know what to mark. Thanks.

You did it right, thanks. Doesn't show up on the main page that way, that's what I saw.

For clarification for those who do not know, the 5 recent post addon to the forum software does not show solved. Neither will the thread lists in any forum. It does show on the detailed thread view, and is filtered from the "View unsolved posts" view.
