I am having a very hard time figuring out just where on this forum (or elsewhere on the kanotix.com website) I should file bug reports. I've been searching, and haven't come up with any useful hit on the words "bug" or "bugs".

Right now, I'm trying to report a showstopper installation bug. I posted the problem here:

http://kanotix.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-18685.html

Some kind people responded, but no one seems to have a real solution, and it looks like a bug that needs to be fixed (hopefully with the next release).

There is a section on the forum for reporting new features we'd like to see in Kanotix, but that doesn't really sound like the right place to report bugs. It seems like the forum either needs a "Bug Reporting" section or else a bug-reporting link should be prominently listed on the home page of the website.

I could, of course, just try sending bug reports to Kano by email, but that doesn't seem like the proper way to do it.

re: the other thread: last post by superrakete works definitely.
for bugs just post the problem ont he appropriate section here. most bugs you find, need their bugreport sent to either kde, debian or package maintainers, but first we try to find a solution/workaround.

I noticed on a recent Google search that a lot of people are having problems being unable to print:
"Results 1 - 10 of about 3,750,000 for can't print. "
That's 3 3/4 million posts on this topic, not to mention in our neck of the woods:

http://kanotix.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-18797.html

When will Kanotix address this basic computer malfunction?
It's not just Kanotix, but a widespread systematic failure.

What are we supposed to say to people who are thinking of switching from Windows to GNU/Linux? "Oh yeah, it's just great if you don't need to ever print anything." Or something like that?

What's wrong with cupsd, or KDE, or whatever's causing this problem? It seems to me like people are sitting on their thumbs regarding this issue. It's a big deal if you're effected by it. It'd be nice to see this item in the News section of the forum, as it is a major bug.
