Go to System>Preferences>Sessions, and go to the Startup Programs tab.
See if you see "Print Queue Applet" on the list, and if you do, make
sure it's checked off. If you can't find it on the list, click Add, and
put anything you want for the name and comment, but use
< /usr/bin/system-config-printer-applet > for the command. If it's on
the list but already checked off, I don't know what's wrong, and I don't
know how to help you.
