It shouldn't ever be necessary to use --nodeps

That's how you broke things in the first place.

If cups service is started (and didn't quit), you should be able to
use...

Administration => Printing

and set up your printer now

make sure it can print a test page from that configuration tool before
you try printing with any other program

I don't have an 'Administration => Printing' in KDE,I'm into
'localhost:631'

yum install system-config-printer

I presume this in reference to logging into cups via firefox and
connecting to

http://localhost:631

root and root's password always work

I still cannot get root acess into cups:631 via firefox.

  david
Getting access to localhost:631 has nothing to do with having
system-config-printer install led.  There is something wrong with you
repos in that you can't install system-config-printer.

Is there a localhost defined in your /etc/hosts file and is cupsd
running is what is essential. Previously you did not have cupsd running.
ps aux |grep cupsd. Does it show cupsd running. We are discussing two
different ways to install printers as if they are the same. They are
not.

you use a shell script for that or does it need a C program?
