CUPS printer installation problem

I have compiled and installed the CUPS package (cups, cups-base, 
cups-lpr, cups-pstoraster). All went well, I had no errors whatsoever. 
After, I tried to install (add) my printer with the command  # kprinter 
(Add Printer wizard, under KDE). In spite of the fact that the 
foomatic-db package is also installed, when I try to install my local 
printer (on the parallel port), the Printer Model  Selection dialog box 
is empty, and I have no printers in my database.
It would be of great help for me if you could give me a hint how to 
solve the problem, because I can not use my printer under FreeBSD at 
all. I'm using FreeBSD 5.1 at home, but I have the same problems at 
office, where I use FreeBSD 4.8.
Thank you very much and excuse me for the trouble I'm causing.

Best regards,
Bogdan M.
