Odd printing behaviour !

Hi Guys,

I am using PCLinuxOS from the image that Alexandre Couture created and 
have discovered an odd printing behaviour.

If I click on print from any PDF or Image it prints OK first time.  If I 
then try to print a second copy or close the application and try to 
print something else the print dialogue comes up frozen.  If I click on 
exit a few times it will tell me that "Kprint" is not responding and 
give me the opertunity to terminate it.

After this I cannot print anything at all without restarting the 
machine.  However when I get back to the desktop, I get the message 
that there is no default printer and to use the "--all" switch.  ??
Clearing the error message allows me to continue as normal.  Untill I 
print something.

I have tried the various dialogues but seem unable to find or access my 

Don't laugh,  I'm still using my HP Deskjet 500 MK1 from over thirty 
years ago.  I long as I can keep refilling the cartridge with ink it 
will continue to be in use !

Thanks guys:

Best Regards:
