I have used Debian for some time, yet seem to be a permanent newbie - 
a 'pernewbie'.

I updated from 1.1.4 to 1.2.1 and have one remaining glitch; lpr has a
problem. I am hoping someone can give me the simple solution:

1. As root, an attempt to 'lpr filename' leads to this error message
	"lpr: /dev/lp1: unknown printer"
	'cat filename > /dev/lp1'
   works OK and the /etc/printcap file looks OK and is one that used
   to work.

2. As a user other than root, 'lpr filename' works just fine.


Thanks in advance, Richard
