Is lpd running? Do you have it automatically startup at boot time?
Do you have directories with proper permissions for the printcap
Its also possible print/cups got built and installed on your machine
via pkgsrc, and you have conflicting system lpr and lpd software in
your $PATH, like defaulting /usr/bin/lpr when you meant to use cups
The spool directory /var/spool/output/lp1 has owner:group daemon:daemon
and mode 755
Cups is not installed.
If I spool a number of files and start the printer with lpc it prints
all the files. Next time I try to print there is no daemon.
