printing in OpenOffice


I have a Slackware 9.1 system. Recently I bought a HP DeskJet 3550 printer and installed OpenOffice.org 1.0.3. I had downloaded hpijs(and configure it to work with CUPS) and the printer works great when printing from Kwrite or other KDE utilities but I don't know how to make it work with OpenOffice. I have the utility OpenOffice.org Printer Administration but I had found just a single HP DeskJet printer(HP DeskJet 1200C/PS) and after that I don't know what is the command line to give in order to print the document with CUPS.
Could someone help me work this out?

Thanks!

Open up the Printer Administration utility. Select Generic Printer (Default). Click on Properties. Change the command to "lpr-cups" without the quote marks. Then, touch wood, it should work.

Cheers

Open Printer Adim. and edit "lpr" command with "krinter".
This allows you more printing options.

You basically mean replace the command lpr (or lpr-cups if you followed my advice above) with the command kprinter. I've just tried it and it seems to work, although it brings up two dialogs before the actual print run. I'll leave mine like this for a while I think and see how I get on.
