|After you printer the test page from apsfilter, did you use the install option ?|
What is in /opt/printcap ?
There was nothing in the printcap file and thus realized from your question that the printer wasn't properly installed. I reinstalled in apsfilter, and now I can print using the lpr command and even print from applications like OpenOffice. Thanks!
So it sounds like the things to check are:
1. The opt/printcap file for the printer settings: If it's not there, the printer wasn't properly installed, or the printcap file wasn't properly saved during the reboot.
2. Use the env command to check for the PRINTER=lp setting. If it's missing, you didn't type export PRINTER=lp, or the computer didn't perform the task upon booting up.
