Unhappy printing problem

Hey... im running Suse linux 8.2 pro and would like to get my printer working.

I thought it was setup already from the linux installation, but it wont print.

I am getting this error:

A print error occured. Error message received from system:

/usr/bin/lpr -P 'Advanced Faxing Tool (ksendfax)' '-#1' '/opt/kde3/share/apps/kdeprint/' : execution failed with message:
lpr: unable to print file: server-error-service-unavailable

Thanks for your help in advance,

to see if your printer is currently supported by linux.

if it is , as root, run the YAST control panel, select hardware, and printer you should be able to set it in there. in 8.1 the printer was not installed by default during the initial setup, dunno if they changed that in 8.2
