I don't know that this'll solve it fully but it appears you'll need to do

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lpr

for that installer to run without the first error.

Hooray, Hooray, Hooray!  That's it.  I have a working printer at last.  I was on the verge installing Windows again but now there's no need.

I can't thank you guys enough.  And if I could do something for you, I would.

Very best wishes,  flighty

Well, I am sorry that my problem hasn't been fully resolved.  Nevertheless, I want to offer my thanks to PCNetSpec for being so patient with somebody who must have seemed careless in his efforts.  In some mitigation, I shyly tell you that I am 82 years old and was never the sharpest knife in the drawer when I was young.
I do enjoy using Linux and thank all those who posted and read the thread. 
Good luck.

You don't need to worry about how "sharp" you are, I'm about as sharp as a sledge hammer and these guys still put up with me. You'll soon find out, this is a great team here.  :)
What was I thinking?
