I have a network printer at last: horay ! this is going to get rid of all the
horrendous problems of configuring CUPS to talk accurately to USB devices which
routinely fail. Instead we just need to send postscript over a network - how
hard can that be :-)

After compound failures using the local CUPS http:// setup, I tried the yast2

I select the type of printer I have, and then I see this dialog.

The lengthy help text is all very well, but ... having a UI that allowed some
selection of this would be rather more pleasant.
