    lpr - command prompt printing but getting GUI


    Hi

    I am trying to use lpr to print from a command line.
    But everytime I run lpr - it opens kprinter.

    I dont want to use a GUI - just the command line to print off to a printer.

    Could anyone explain how to make lpr not use the gui?

    Thanks
    NeilB

    Hmm, you may want to try the command lp to print, you may also want to run
    Code:
    type lpr
    to see if lpr is linked or aliased to kprinter
