(1) Attach the printer to the LTSP client machine.

(2) Configure this machine to run a printer in lts.conf (default
    location: /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf), see the LTSP manual
    for details).

in the said file did

(3) Configure the printer using the www:631 web interface on tjener.
    Choose network printer 'AppSocket/HP Jet direct' and set
    'socket://<LTSP client ip>:9100' as connection URI.

did this too

now rebooted the client

The printer shows up in applications but nothing is printed.

Using wheezy BTW.
The printer has to be set up this way as not all services on LTSP
clients are installed (or even if so, are not running).

You could change this default using settings in lts.conf, see the
description of KEEP_SYSTEM_SERVICES in the LTSP manual. In this case you
would need to make sure that all needed packages (esp. printer drivers)
are installed inside the LTSP chroot.
