The FreeBSD base system comes with lpr/lpd, so you have an lpr binary at /usr/bin/lpr. Cups installs its lpr to /usr/local/bin/lpr. You can move your /usr/bin/lp* binaries aside and replace them with symbolic links to the cups binaries in /usr/local/bin if you wish, or if you have a way to tell mutt which lpr binary to use you can do that. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
