Thanks for such a prompt reply.

I do not particularly want anything different than what I had before... which was working.
The CSWcupsclient was a required package for evince which was required for nearly anything.

Are you saying that if I do a pkgrm on CSWcupsclient CSWcups CSWcupsd CSWcupsdoc CSWlibcups  and CSWlibgnomecusp that there is a good chance that all the other 205 packages of CSW I have will still be happy?

If not, where is a good place for me to read about how to duplicate my Sun lpd setup with a openCSW cups setup?

Hi George,

/usr/bin/lpstat is part of an entirely different printing system from
/opt/csw/bin/lpstat.  The former is Sun lpd, the latter is CUPS.  You
need to decide which one you want to use, and uninstall the other one.
