You should also add cupsys-client and cupsys-bsd (cupsys-bsd provides
the 'lpr' and 'lpq' commands, you'll probably remove the 'lpr'
package) and the cupsys-driver-gimpprint package.  You will need the
clients to submit jobs to the cups system, and you'll also want the
gimpprint drivers since the previous poster said they worked for him.

Have you configured any printers yet (with cups, that is)?  If not, do
so.  You can use either the 'lpadmin' command or point a web browser
at http://localhost:631.  The cups package provides _lots_ of
documentation too.  All of it is accessible as HTML at the above URL.
