Shopping...

I went to my dealer today to get the PN15 54MBit Wireless Adapter for my Shuttle SN41G2 system. It was not available (which I expected) so I ordered it and bought the BenQ Mini Buddy (keyboard and mouse) to get a small laptop like keyboard for my desktop machine.

Then I asked for the cost of the parallel port adapter from Shuttle but I thought it was too expensive. So I got the Sitecom USB to Printer Adapter to check whether it works with my machine too.

I was very happy to see it almost working with the CUPS web interface, but it showed "usb://Unknown/" as the printer address although I selected "USB Printer #1". I remembered the gnome-cups-manager and decided to take a look at it. Imagine, gnome-cups-manager did work almost as easy as I could have imagined and I got the Ximian test page printed even more easily than ever. THANK YOU GUYS
