If you have print options not supported by the LPR/LPRng print subsystem plugin, please use the "Print through external program"-plugin.

If you are a user who has ingrained LPRng into his habits, you should be able to come up with the correct command to insert into the "Print command:" box. If you can't do that, please consult the Foomatic+LPRng documentation on www.linuxprinting.org. Foomatic allows you to use virtually every PPD option with any non-CUPS print system, including LPRng.

We are sorry, but there is no one currently (nor was there anybody in the last 4 years) who was willing to implement full LPRng support in KDEPrint. LPRng is a dying project (or dead already?), and it doesn't look anybody is going to revive it again.

I'm going to close this as WONTFIX.
