I solved that problem last night, but I'm not sure how. I was able to
print from within Abiword, but Firefox would core-dump. I ended up
doing two things, one of which apparently fixed the problem. First,
when I ran apsfilter, I made sure a test page printed - then chose to
add the new printer definition to my printcap file (before exiting
SETUP). Second, in the printcap file, I changed the first line from
"ps|lp|aps1..." to "lp|ps|aps1..." - since I read somewhere that "lp"
was the real name for the printer. Now I can print.
