Balthisar, almost there....

Sometimes, I've been told by some users, that you have to change the ownership of the lpd.filter file. I didn't specify to set ownership of these files in the instructions, because I didn't have to. Apparently, this isn't working for you.

Try changing the permissions of the /usr/local/lib/lpd/lpd.filter file so that it's daemon.daemon. If that doesn't work, also try root.daemon, or shortname.shortname for the name of the account your trying to print from. It sounds like a permissions issue. You could also use chmod on the file to make the lpd.filter file executable by anyone.

Get back if this none of this works for you.
