Yes I am printing from the Gimp print dialog. And changing the printer
in the printer setup does not affect the print command Gimp is
And it is printing fine as I wrote in my original post.
The only problem I have is that in the print job list every print job
from Gimp has the name '(stdin)'. I would like the name of the
printed file to appear there and from the lpr side this is done via
the '-C' option. Now I need Gimp to insert the file name into the
print command. So the print command specification in the printer
setup should be something like 'lpr -C $filename' where Gimp is
replacing $filename with the actual file name.
BTW, I am printing through CUPS. I don't know whether CUPS' lpr
differs from standard lpr.
