I do not use Open Office so I do not know from the top of my head how to 
fix it.

However if you print now from OpenOffice it should print into the 
PostScript file. That file is printable with lpr. You can make a small 
script that you will put into the .openoffice or something like that 
which will execute these
commands simultaneously.

Look for the solution on the net. You are not the first guy who is 
trying to print from the OpenOffice running FreeBSD.
