the LS for some reason. Hopefully there is a solution to this.

in /dev. Look for a directory in /dev/ called "usb". If you don't
have one, create it: "mkdir usb", make sure it is world executable
and readable, you can do a "chmod 755 /dev/usb" to make sure. Then
go into that directory and start creating device nodes:
mknod /dev/usb/lp0 c 180 0
mknod /dev/usb/lp1 c 180 1
mknod /dev/usb/scanner0 c 180 48
mknod /dev/usb/scanner1 c 180 49
make sure they are world read/writeable (chmod 666 *)
This might be your only problem.

the 12 megabits maximum that USB-1 can do.
Darn, so I might go over to the Kurobox forums and see if any of
those people know anything about this.

about Debian is that when it messes up, there is usually a command
somewhere that will fix it.

"remote desktop protocol" does, maybe this is just the "system bell"
charactor being sent.
> Knowing how you put on cups would be great..Lets see, I installed cupsys, cupsys-bsd (not sure if it is needed
in your case), cupsys-client, cupsys-driver-gimpprint, and
cupsys-driver-gimpprint-data, then I think I then ended up needing
to install Ghostscript (gs-common, gs-esp, gs-gpl, gsfonts). A
whole lot of stuff, but your Stylus CX-3200 printer is listed (so it
is supported). The foomatic direction you started on might also
work, but you probably need "foomatic-db-gimp-print" and a couple of
other things it depends on if you don't already have them. This
might be a quicker, cleaner way to get there. Printing on Unix-like
systems is sure a mess!
