I have installed, as root, the trial version of turboprint as it seemed the best way of getting the drivers I needed. No problems with this software itself.
How can I get turboprint to start up automatically at boot up? At present this will only happen if I keep the X-terminal with the relevant command in it open when I shut down. Failing this I have to open a terminal in root and tell turboprint to start.
It is not clear in the manual, but it implies that if you use an RPM or DEB you should be OK. Is there an init script for it in you /etc/init.d?
