[vox-tech] Sarge Printing Problem

I've done a Sarge net install three times now, and it's quite an experience.  
I get a different set of packages even when I choose the same stuff to 
download.  I don't have sound and I can't print.  But I've got some stuff to 
read on sound, and will try to take care of that on my own.  But the printing 
is a mystery.

I can't print from the GUI (Gnome in this case.)  At first I could print from 
the command line using the command "lpr."  But after downloading the Cups 
packages "lpr" would not work.  What would work from the command line was 
"lpr -l."

Later nothing would print at all from the command line or GUI.  Then still 
ater when I would print from the GUI I'd get this:  "%!PS-Adobe-3.0 
%%BoundingBox:  (attend)  %%Creator:  OpenOffice."  That message would be 
followed by either a bunch of gibberish followed by blank pages, or just by 
the blank pages.

Now, for some reason, I am unable to print anything.  I can't print from the 
command line or the GUI.  I've also downloaded all the foomatic packages I 
can find.

So does anybody have any ideas as to what I might do? 

Thank you.
