Just checked again. Even though I did not have CUPS_OVERWRITE_BASE=YES
in /etc/make.conf when installing cups, I renamed the system's lp*
tools so those of CUPS are being used:
% which lpq lpr lprm lp
The system's tools are out of scope now.
% ls /usr/bin/lp*
As I made sure from various programs, CUPS _can_ actually print.
It just doesn't print from Opera.
