Iw added two network printers through cupsys (localhost:631)
Printing a test pages works fine.

Though when i try to print from a text program i get

E [17/Dec/2008:11:25:11 +0100] [cups-driverd] Unable to open PPD directory "/usr/local/share/ppd": Permission denied

(all from /var/log/cups/error_log)

Also cant see printer listing under Default printers or in firefox and simular programs.

Any suggestions on what can be wrong?
Dont want to have problems with your computer?
Solution : install a good free anti virus, anti spyware & and stay away from misleading applications. Update your OS and vital programs as often as you can, to shut down those open security holes.
Stay away from shareware and trailware applications, avoid installing browser addins and toolbars. Read up on things before trying new applications.

You may want to start by

chmod a+x
on the directories listed.

It seems like a config file or a shared system file is broken.
If that's the case, I wouldn't know where to look. You could try
re-installing Cups altogether. Did you install cups through a package manger?
