I set up printing to grazia from allegra. The CUPS interface was not as straightforward as Tobin had made it seem in the Wiki. I had to type in the IP address and port number by hand.

The steps (AFAIR):
1) Goto http://localhost:631/
2) Click on "Add Printer"
3) Choose HP JetDirect
4) Use the correct address (socket://131.215.115.220:9100)
5) Choose HP and the 5550 postscript driver as the options
6) Try to only print useful stuff and not kill too many trees.


It ought to be root to do that.
