If none of the more specific forums is the right place to ask

the printer prints the test pages but not the files

Hi to everyone.
I am a new user of Debian. I have a printer connected through a network. Following the instructions that I did find in this forum, I did set up the printer, and it does print the test page.... but I do not get any output when I send a file to print!!! Why? It is the default printer, and if I do lpq I can see that my job is queuing (it is the only one, the first but it does not come out).

Thanks,
Elena

...the new printer prints the document if it is open with gedit, AbiWord or OpenOfficeWriter....it is only the command line that does not work.

An other question: following the path Desktop/Administration/Printing I reach the window containing all printers. I want to delete some of them and to rename mine. Is it possible?

Thanks, Elena
