debian packages

    I just installed gnulpr and associated goo using the "" script -- I see for debian all it did was add a line to /etc/apt/sources.list and then install task-gnulpr

    I'm running debian woody and I noticed the install pulled everything (lpr-ppd, gpr, printtool, etc...) from the woody repository, not from ...  Is this a problem?

    When I run "gpr --version" I get version 0.8, but I see the latest on sourceforge is 0.9 .  Are there .debs for this version and associated tools?

    As a debian user what's the best way to stay up to date with gnulpr?

    BTW -- most things seem to work.  I'm printing to a HP LaserJet 2200 (downloaded the PPD from, which I configured with the printtool.  The only thing that's not working well is gpr -- my printer's orange error light flashes whenever I use gpr, plus I get the same error message another poster to this list had

    GLib-CRITICAL **: file gstrfuncs.c: line 1195 (g_strcasecmp): assertion `s2 != NULL' failed.

    I **can**, however, achieve the features I'm really interested in (duplex and NUP) by printing with "a2ps --side=2". 

    Thanks for all the effort --
