Just adding some additional printing exploits, in case anybody is

psc-1315 no longer prints.  All the printing (as of this Monday morning)
can now only be done through psc_1310_series_.  I tested several
applications and the print test page before posting.  Why?  Saturday
psc_1310_series_ wouldn't print anything.

No new downloads; no reboots since the original post.  Isn't
"psc_1310_series_" and "psc_1315" just a name or alias for the same
printer.  Why is HAL using Device URI
while Fedora printer-config gui uses Device URI 

And, is that the difference?  Why would things change?  Household

I thought we had gotten rid of the HAL reconfiguring the printer over a
month or two ago??
