If you set $PRINTER=defaultlp server in the user's environment, using
LPRng, it does the same thing. Which solves the current issue. But it
would be nice to give the user a choice.

From what I read, the person does not necessarily need the printers
automagically detected (a dificult task, apparently). Could there not
simply be an interface where an administrator could manually list a
number of printers by specific *nix commands, and the user interface
would then pick from this list in a drop down. This list could be stored
in an evo-specific file such as "evo_printers", which defaults to
containing say, lpr?

I have a switch in my apartment that doesn't do anything. Every once
in a while I turn it on and off. On and off. On and off. One day I
got a call from a woman in France who said "Cut it out!"
