Hi Ubuntu users,

I installed xfig 3.2.5 to an i686 platform running Feisty.  I get the
following error when I click print from the file menu:

Error during PRINT.  Messages:
 lp: Bad page-ranges values 0-0.

I can export the file to .eps and print with a PostScript printer.
But I'd like to be able to print directly to the printer.  It seems
that xfig uses 'lp' instead of 'lpr' by default.  That's probably what
is causing the problem.  Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
Can I solve it by changing 'lp' to 'lpr'?  And how?
