Linux picks up my printer as lp2 (although dos finds LPT1). This in
itself shouldn't cause a problem. I can redirect to /dev/lp2 and stuff
comes out my printer.
lpr however puts stuff in the queue and leaves it there. I've looked at
the Printing-Howto and it seems more concerned with formatted output.
I did have lpr working until I upgraded to Slackware 2.1 and I know I
messed around with it - but I can't remember what I did :-(
I have set PRINTER=/dev/lp2 - and I would have thought that it was then
the default printer - didn't help though.
