I have made the changes, but the printer does not print :( from firefox.
I might ``try the /etc/csh.cshrc for system-
wide use'' option :) and get back

[olivares at quadcore ~]$ cat .bashrc
# User specific environment and startup programs
setxkbmap -option compose:ralt
export PRINTER="Deskjet"

[olivares at quadcore ~]$ echo $PRINTER
