    Execute /usr/share/apsfilter/SETUP and answer the questions properly.
    Execute 'checkpc -f'
    Confirm that lpd is running 'ps ax | grep lpd', if not then start it
    # /usr/sbin/lpd

    I have done everything You wrote. No result:(
    - I have run apsfilter
    - checkpc -f displays nothing (which means everything is OK)?
    - lpd is running

    You must learn to walk before learning how to run. Print a text file
    first:

    $ lpr /etc/printcap

    Printing of .pdf files using apsfilter requires that Adobe's Acrobat
    Reader be installed with a symlink /usr/bin/acroread ->
    /opt/Acrobat5/bin/acroread.

    Check /var/spool/lpd/lp/status.pr for error messages.

    Of course it doesn't change the fact that I am a newbe. When my printer
    worked I didn't bother to check how it did. Now, when it doesn't I have
    to learn some new things.

    It didn't print txt file either
