Question AbiWord lists lpr -P(null) as its print command. Why?


My Red Hat box uses a remote printer on my network. I can print with Mozilla, OpenOffice, and other apps just fine but when I try to print with AbiWord 2.0.3 it lists "lpr -P(null)" as the print command. When I click print, nothing happens (of course). If I replace the (null) with the printer name from the /etc/printcap file then it prints just fine.

How can I configure AbiWord to always use the default printer?
