Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Note that /usr/bin/lpr is a symbolic link to /usr/bin/lpr-cups. My understanding is that typing lpr in the "Print with command" field of xpdf will use cups to print the PDF file to the default printer. At least with the default installation of Slackware.
If I remember correctly one can also use options in the xpdf print command field such as "lpr -P <printername>".
At least that's the way it works for me in Slackware64 14.0. Maybe it has changed in 14.1 and -current.
I don't use KDE so perhaps I've completely misunderstood the objective in this thread. (Print from xpdf right?)
EDIT: I misunderstood frankbell's reply. I should have worded this post differently.
