Thanks.

so50cups (no dot) is there.

At boot up today:

/var/log/cups/error_log is empty

/var/log/cups/error_log.1.gz (from yesterday):
E [07/Feb/2010:10:51:15 -0500] Unable to remove temporary file

.hplip contains an empty file
-rw-r----- 1 lp lp 0 2010-01-18 17:43 hplip.conf

What do I look for next? I don't think I did anything interesting with
permissions anywhere - certainly nothing since I upgraded to karmic.
