Here's my setup:
HP DeskJet 820C Foomatic/pnm2ppa (recommended)
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
Device URI: parallel:/dev/lp0
If you don't want to use the kde tool to set it up fire up konqueror, go
to http://localhost:631 where you get a nice interface for configuring
Now that this has come up, I remember previous discussions/complaints
that the foomatic drivers were the only ones that worked and that they
weren't installed by default. Download them if you have to.
