I installed the gtk stuff in that way and I do have the entries you
listed. But I don't seem to have the same printer entries in

I have put

print.print_printer  user_set  string lpr

which doesn't seem to work. I can't see options for your other entries.
How did you create an entry for print.postscript.cups.enabled?
