Thanks. See me post form yesterday.
Of course I am  using cups as print spooler.
Sven's suggestion of adding kprinter with one single command (kprinter)
in the command line solves this problem.

Gene, how are you going to change paper size to tabloid or legal if you
do it your way. How would you tell to print 5 copies, or to use the
manual tray instead of the lower tray to print transparencies, etc.?
You just need "kprinter".
