I decided to try to reinstall that lprng pkg. I went looking for it on
the cdrom I had made and did not find it (libpng was the similar name I
had recalled) Then I noticed that cups was on that cd. I had installed
cups which wiped out lprng. So I uninstalled cups and got my Slackware
installation cdrom out and installed lprng which was gone after
uninstalling cups for some reason. Not sure what happened there.
After the reinstall, I had to get the spool back and the easiest way for
me was to just rerun apsfilter's configuration, use what was there which
was my default stuff already in printcap, Install it which made the
spool, and quit. Now the printer is working again.
