The list of available printers should be filled automatically if xprint
is installed (from the output of "lpstat"). You might have to tweak the
Augment_Printer_List command in /etc/Xprint/C/print/Xprinters. It seems
that you can also add printers manually in this file, but I have no
experience with that.
