lpr is /usr/bin/lpr

/etc/printcap on my server says:

There is no /etc/printcap on my local machine, since there is no printer
connected to my local machine, and no cupsd running (client only). 

I just tried to create a /etc/printcap file with the same content on my

I have gnu-gs-fonts-other and gnu-gs-fonts-std installed.
