Re: how to build .tbz2 binary package from source ?

You basically have 2 options that i know of.

1. Build the package in a sandbox and install it within the sandbox and then tar it up.

2. Write an ebuild for the package and use portage to build the binary package with `emerge --buildpkg`

#2 being the proper way to do it in gentoo/sabayon

Re: Install printer

Is Ubuntu's CUPS properly setup for sharing on your network? or are you using a samba share for some reason? Have you tried adding the printer using the cups web admin page?
