I am using BSD lpr services (BSD printing on Linux). I WAS using CUPS, but removed it in favour of the older printing system. Now Firebird/Iceweasel thinks that there are NO PRINTERS.

What do I have to set or modify to get the printer recognized?

Thanks,

Dean

Better late than never: you can get a little closer to lpr-based printing by adding

gtk-print-backends = "file,lpr"

to your ~/gtkrc-2.0 file. This will not get you a printer listing but should at least offer the possibility to enter the lpr command line used for printing. That's the closest to lpr printing you can get nowadays.
