Question What is the correct print command in PAN newsreader?

I have configured PAN to subscribe to the groups I am interested in reading, and it works. However, when I try to print a copy of an article, I get no output.

My HP Laserjet is configured, and is working in other applications here in Mepis, but does not print in PAN. The default print command PAN shows is "lpr".

I have tried changing this to lp, or lpd, or CUPS/Laserjet-Net, which is my printer name. No joy.

Anyone know what I need to put on the command line in PAN to get a printout? Thanks in advance.

Try 'lpr -P Laserjet-Net'. If that fails, check your cups logfiles, maybe it's something else.

Print command in PAN

Your suggestion for:
lpr -P Laserjet-Net
worked like a charm.

Many Thanks!
