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.
