That would be nice but it doesn't work here. As both a user and as root it

Mozilla returns:

The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:631

Konqueror returns:

An error occured while loading http://localhost:631:

Could not connect to host localhost (port 631)

This is with SuSE 8.0.

Thanks for the clear explanation.

significantly costlier than pigeon brains, and for many tasks they
are actually superior. --Richard Dawkins
