Printing problems

Using Linux Enterprise, RElease 4, RedHat
Set up printer through the GNOME GUI
Able to print a test page, no problem.
After rebooting, my printer appears in the print manager. However, when I click the print icon in an application (ex. Test Editor applicaiton), nothing happens.
Using a JetDirect Printer, port 9100, the Printer is a Generic PostScript Printer.

What's up?

no question is a stupid question thats why I am asking.
Is it declared as standard printer?

what shows
lpstat -p -d
after you setup the printer and then after you restarted your system.

can you sent a file through the console to the printer?
lp -d printer filename
lpr -P printer filename
