      I actually have Debian and Arch booting off 16GB flash. So you were printing from the NSLU2 to the NSLU2? I only mentioned the rtl2832u because they cost less than $20 and they're a fun plaything.

        Hi
        no I was printing from the laptop to the NSLU2 running squeeze, and cups as raw, the same as the
        pogoplug.
        Both pcb negatives and jpegs sent to the NSLU2 just printed as pages of numbers.
        I'll try it now with the pogoplug as the server.
        Sent a jpeg up and it printed out, and it did so pretty quick, next sent a pcb image up, only
        printed at 720 dpi , but it prints fine.
        It looks like I need to set up a special printer for pcb images with the remote cups server using
        gutenprint with the resolution set at 2880x 2880 dpi, and just use that for pcb images ,
        Shotwell I can set the print resolution on the gui.
        I should be able to do this on the Eagle gui, but for some reason its not allowing it.
        Apart from that its working well

        Noted on the RTL2832u. a useful device, but very insensitive , but cheap :)
