I'm stuck, not knowing how to set up printers to print from either my desktop
computer with LinuxMandrake 7.1 or my laptop with CorelDeluxeLinux.
I just tried to print (to my Epson Stylus Color 440) this very Forum Questions
and Responses section, 'cause I just HAD to show my shrink friends Mikey's
strange billboard posting
(he's been staring at CRTs to much.) <G>
and I got the following message window:

sh: lpr: command not found

What do I do?
Does Linux have something comparable to Windows Control Panel/Add New
Hardware, that searches out everything and automatically installs it?

My laptop docking station is hooked to a Hewlett Packard Deskjet 710C. It also
doesn't print. One, but probably not the main, challenge is that WordPerfect
for Linux gives lists of printers for setup, and the 710C isn't one of them.
So I've tried other HP printers with similar names. But it seems to be asking
for a printer driver AND A DESTINATION. Heck, the PRINTER is the destination.
Does ANYONE have an idea on this? It's tough to reach Corel for help on
anything.

Mark
