Pita, Great! Glad it works for you.
Perhaps that is my problem. I don't see a system-config-printer in VL 6.0. Rather, I see the name in cups (hplaserjet4mplus) but neither that nor lpr will print in xpdf. So I use evince, which works fine. Evince apparently is smart enough to know which printer I am using. I am just bothered by the fact that xpdf printed fine if 5.8 and 5.9 but won't, using the same protocol, print pdfs in vector 6. I see a print manager in Accessories and an HP Device Manager which I have never used. No big deal. Evince works fine.
