Thanks all, but that's not the issue.  The drivers are there but Trinity
is not seeing them.  In fact, I also installed an HP2605dn via Trinity
and it used some very inadequate and feature poor driver.  I just
modified it using the CUPS web interface and all the features are now

I suspect it may be a Debian/Trinity issue because of the previously
mentioned issue of the missing path to /opt/kde3 which I believe is
where Trinity stores its files on Ubuntu (not 100% certain) whereas it
is /opt/trinity on Debian.  Thanks again - John
