Printer Setup in Linux

How do I setup my HP Deskjet 600c in Linux?  When I type LP or LPR, I get
this message:

         no display name and no $DISPLAY environment variable.

How do I set this up so I can print?

Get ghostscript and apsfilter 4.91.  Apsfilter comes with an excellent
install and setup script that does "everything" for you, including
setting up the queues and /etc/printcap.  Use one of the drivers for the
DJ 550C - there are none specifically for the 600.  It will only print
at 300 dpi, but otherwise will work fine for both color and
black-white.  It sounds like you should also read the Printing HOWTO
also, so you understand the background of how printing works.

1. setup.ins error when installing OO in 5.0-REL

I just recently compiled OpenOffice 1.0.2 from ports (vs the package because I
want WITH_TTF_BYTECODE_ENABLED). The make worked fine, but when I do a make
install-user, I get the error about not being able to find setup.ins in
/usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.0/program/. I searched for this error but all the
info I found was old, regarding manual patches (which probably don't work
anymore with current versions) and stuff about it appearing if you're using a
FreeBSD older than 4.6 and to upgrade.

Any idea why this message would be occuring with 5.0-REL?
