I guess your KDE used lpr and if no PRINTER var is defined lpr use the
queue lp as default.  For cups forget the fragile PRINTER settings. With

        echo Default {yourqueuehere} >> /etc/cups/lpoptions

set the systemwide default queue for the cups client tools.  Users
can change it in file ~/.lpoptions or via PRINTER (and/or LPDEST?)

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
