Not sure what to tell him here. Sounds like HAL isn't seeing his device.
Have him take a look here:


He'll need to send a bug report to the HAL guys, letting them know about
the problem. The maintainer over there is eager for bug reports ;)

Which "modern" printers is he referring to? We're up to date with the
latest stuff in ports, but it may be missing some in there. Maybe a PBI
is needed?

I agree, but we don't have it in place to do so just yet. Maybe we can
switch to a "joomfish" format for the quick-guide, which will let us
translated it easily into other langs.

I'm unsure which / where this dictionary is. I'm installing the entire
kde-fr translation package, but maybe this isn't in ports? As for clock,
I'll add it to Trac :)
