This all happened to me when I also upgrade cups. I tried to go back an reinstall all the cups packages to see what would happen. Doing this I found that cups-lpr was broken and did not install. I manually made the sim links to /usr/local/bin/lpr, /usr/local/bin/lpq and /usr/local/bin/lprm (I believe that was all) as this is what had to be done in the old days before the cups-lpr port. After doing this I can now print from non-KDE apps using the lpr command. But krpinter still did not work with CUPS so I changed it to print with lpd and it now works.
