    I own a usb Canon Pixma iP 1600 printer and I use FBSD-7.0-R
amd64. I've choosen LPRng as printer spooler and foomatic-filters,
everything is OK in /etc/printcap but when I type "lpq" I get "printer
not found" as output.

     # /etc/printcap

        ip2200_usb_ps: \

        :force_localhost: \
        :if=/usr/local/bin/foomatic-rip: \
        :ppd=/usr/local/libexec/cups/filter/canonip2200.ppd: \
        :sd=/var/spool/lpd/ip2200_usb_ps: \

     I followed all the info contained in "openprinting" section lpd
and I chmoded 0755 lprng.sh
