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.

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.
