Description of problem:
The current default action when the print button is clicked is
to print to a .ps file in /tmp.  This is not a useful default
and it is not obvious to the user how this needs to be changed to
make print print.  He would have to RTFM.

The default print action should be changed to "|lpr" in /etc/xpdfrc

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
