     22== To add a HP network printer to your Red Hat Enterprise workstation: ==
     23
     24/!\ The Red Hat printer configuration and spooler uses CUPS (Common Unix Printing System),
     25so make sure System->Services has `cupsd` and `cups-config-daemon` activated. If you have
     26trouble with a CUPS printer, you can go to http://localhost:631 and click on "Manage Printers"
     27(log on as root) and investigate through the CUPS web interface. A common problem is a
     28"Stopped" printer.
