[lug] setting up CUPS....

I thought LPR and IPP referred to the protocols used to talk to 
remote/network printers, not the mechanism driving the printer from the 
host system. But that's a moot difference since LPR's reporting 
mechanisms are... challenged.

Anyway, installing cupsys deinstalls lprng. When I attempt to print test 
pages the queue managers (lpstat in BSD compatibility package, gnome 
app) report that the print jobs were cancelled. I don't think the 
problem is on the enqueuing side since I can get a print history and 
there are files in /var/spool/cups. I know it's not on the hardware side 
since lprng works fine. There's a PPD file for the printer in 
/etc/cups/ppd. What's left?
