first of all, you used that bad letter. Just call it X. Never add an s
at the end of the other word. Some people are real allergic to this.

You must have some printing system installed on the machine.
I would recommend CUPS for this purpose.
Go to a console and enter this:
pkg_info | grep cups
You should get then some output like this:
cups-base-1.3.3 Common UNIX Printing System
libgnomecups-0.2.2_4,1 Support library for gnome cups admistration
This error messages are too general for me.

If you have CUPS, you can use a web browser to administer the printer.
What kind of rpinter do you have installed?
