Logged out no, started a new konsole and ran ff from it yes. Managed to 
get the little b&w laser working, but a 2 year old 11x17 MFC? Won't 
configure, missing file although the latest driver kit from brother is 
installed, so I find I have a nearly $700 scanner/copier/printer thats 
been discontinued!  And they've blocked or removed any access to the old 
files.  Thats generated a nastygram to brother, its a 2 year old 
printer.
