ImageMagick (display command) tries to print via an exec
to the 'lp' command.  Unless I failed to install the right
printer rpm, my system has only 'lpr'

so the result is that printing does not work from
ImageMagick.

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-18 23:12:59 UTC
Thanks.  That's fixed in our latest ImageMagick package, which will
be in the next RawHide and the next Red Hat Linux.

In the meantime, in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick/delegates.mgk, change
	lp -c -s %i
to
	lpr %i
and it should work.  You can even select your favorite printer there with
	lpr -P<something> %i
if you like.
