printer scheduler apparently not repsponding

Hello. I recently tried setting up my LaserJet 4L on my Slackware 9.0 box using the "Foomatic from the User's Point of View" document at linuxprinting dot org (sorry about that, I apparently can't put in url's because I'm new.)

I installed cups, installed the foomatic scripts, and set up my printer on the CUPS server by logging in via (http)://localhost:631
I printed a test page, and it seemed to work great. If I remember correctly, the printer printed on emacs and quite a few other apps... until I restarted. The restart really killed me. Somehow emacs will not print anything, nor lpr. But when I try to use lpr, I get the message

lpr: error - scheduler not responding!

Yet, when I log in to the CUPS printing system via (http):// localhost:631 and print a test page, everything works fine. In fact, I tried using the foomatic "alignmargins" tool, and it printed out an alignment page just fine.

Does anyone know what's going on? Am I missing some sort of link to the scheduler?
Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

What's the kind of connection between your printer and your box? Is by paralel port or USB?

Try to run the "lpd" daemon ... by the command "#lpd" as root or it might not work...
