Twould be nice if you could expound a bit on what /exactly/ the problem
(error messages, whatnot), along with what printing sub-system you use
vs. cups vs. whatever).  Oh, and what printer you use would be helpful
well :-)



Error message: "printer not found"
Print system: lpr
Printer: Epson CS800 using GS uniprint drivers

from console "cat foo > lpr" works
test print in apsfilter works

printing from kmail, konqueror, kword, or anything else in KDE gives
error msg.
I have three resolutions and a "raw" printer. They are displayed in KDE
print manager. I did set one as my default. Clicking the "test" button
in KDE Print Manager gives error messsage.

Would it be better to change from lpr to lnprg or cups?
