AFAIK, you can't do that in *NIX.
It might be possible for you to set it up if (and only if) your application
will print a file using the command line. But, this would be for each
application, there is no general way to do it.
If the application will print from the command line you need to add the
command to the: 'desktop' file like it is for: "Eject":
[Desktop Action Eject]
So it would be something like this in the 'desktop' file for the menu:
[Desktop Action Print]
Exec="/usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/program/swriter" -p %F
Where the: "Exec" needs to be the correct command for your application.
This is for OpenOffice Writer. I haven't tried this but it should work.
