Install package bug or better reportbug.
Then you just type 'reportbug PACKAGENAME'. Make sure that your EMAIL
variable is set correctly before that (with bash:
'export EMAIL="Your Name <Your@address.com>' put this in your .bashrc)
Finding the correct package name could be tricky sometimes. In your
case, is there something like kprint? I do not know ...

Some of the things I have told you were wrong. I have checked all of it
again and here is my solution:
Reinstall apsfilter by calling
apt-get --purge remove apsfilter
apt-get install apsfilter
DO NOT edit the printcap file manually!!!
Check if regular printing works with lpr PSFILE or a2ps ASCII-FILE.
Ok, this should work now.
Then in KDE (logged in as the regular user) go to
ControlCenter->System->Printing and set the print system (at bottom) to
Now, printing for that user should work even from KDE. Test it by
printing a text file from Konqueror.
This worked for me and now my printing system is set up properly the
first time. :-)
Hope you can say the same afterwards.
