    I have Freebsd 6.1 and gnome as a desktop and can't find gnome-print-manager, How can I find it to setup my local usb printer?

    You could just use the cups web interface. All you need to do is install cups, start it ("/usr/local/etc/rc.d/cups.sh start" or add "cups_enable=YES" to /etc/rc.conf and reboot) and then enter http://localhost:631 in your web browser. You will get an interface to setup your printer, just login as root and click on manage printers.
