Printer setup works, printertest works fine, applications then will print. I used EmElfm to save printer configuration to /home/dsl/.filetool.lst (files saved were /opt/apsfilter and /opt/printcap). Before closing down I went to system/backup/restore and backed up the file to a fd0..

When I rebooted using the option restore=fd0 the printer doesn't work unless you reconfigure it from scratch. The control panel at this point shows that the Printer/lpd button is depressed.

What am I doing wrong?

I think you missed one directory, var/spool/lpd/lp

Where the lp is really the name of your printer, or you could use
var/spool/lpd if you have multiple printers

Therefore the files to add to .filetool.lst are:

Entered suggested third line. Printer configuration fully saved and working.
