Have not had any success getting this to work. I do get the 299
Get-Printer-Attributes client-error-not-found and have tried ipp, lpd,
and http with no success. I do get the following from the yast printer
config after completion, but nothing when trying to connect.

Printer is laserjet 2300 post script. OSX 4.3 allows laserjet 2300 PS,
but cups does not, only laserjet 2000 series and gimp print. This does
not make sense to me. Anyhow, tried what you suggested, but your

http://cups_server:631/printers/printer format

is a little confusing.What do you put in the printers and what in the
printer format? I tried laserjet2300 series which is the name of the
host print queue. Could you please detail the printer and printer format
a little more?
