You know how it is, you get some source code and you fiddle around with it and try and make it build, install, work.. and then after wasting some time you eventually get around to consulting the README file. Well, some README files are well worth reading, here is the contents of the gnome-cups-manager README file... very amusing.
Once upon a time there was a printer who lived in the woods. He was a lonely printer, because nobody knew how to configure him. He hoped and hoped for someone to play with.
One day, the wind passed by the printer's cottage. "Whoosh," said the wind. The printer became excited. Maybe the wind would be his friend!
"Will you be my friend?" the printer asked.
"Whoosh," said the wind.
"What does that mean?" asked the printer.
"Whoosh," said the wind, and with that it was gone.
The printer was confused. He spent the rest of the day thinking and jamming paper (for that is what little printers do when they are confused).
The next day a storm came. The rain came pouring down, darkening the morning sky and destroying the printer's garden. The little printer was upset. "Why are you being so mean to me?" he asked.
"Pitter Patter, Pitter Patter," said the rain.
"Will you be my friend?" the printer asked shyly.
"Pitter Patter, Pitter Patter," said the rain, and then it left and the sun came out.
The printer was sad. He spent the rest of the day inside, sobbing and blinking lights cryptically (for that is what little printers do when they are sad).
Then one day, a little girl stumbled into the printer's clearing in the woods. The printer looked at this curious sight. He didn't know what to think.
The little girl looked up at him. "Will you be my friend?" she asked.
"Yes," said the printer.
"What is your name?" asked the little girl.
"HP 4100TN", replied the printer.
"My name is gnome-cups-manager" said the little girl.
The printer was happy. He spent the rest of the day playing games and printing documents, for that is what little printers do when they are happy.
