Openoffice 2.0 and kprinter

don't know whether its OO fault, kprinter or whether it is just me (: 
so I'm asking my question here: 
I'm trying to get OpenOffice 2 to use kprinter and to show me the kprinter 
dialog when printing.  
my first try was to add a pdf creator and use the command kprinter --stdin, 
but OpenOffice always ignored that i wanted this printer as a default. 
second i tried to manually edit the psprint.conf file, also without any luck. 
third i added the line 
to my .profile file and OO ignores the cups, and i can add a ordinary printer, 
exactly kprinter. there is only one problem: the file is printed out correctly 
using the kprinter dialog but after the kprinter dialog disappears i recieve a 
message from openoffice stating: "error while printing" 
and nothing more. anybody a hint what i can do? 
why do i want to do this? all other applications use kprinter for printing, 
$AVERAGEUSER is highly disturbed when there no kprinter dialog shows up when 
printing from openoffice. especially when in cups something like n-up page 
printing or duplex or whatever was saved prior from printing from another 
application, OO will pick these defaults regardless whether the user wants 
that or not. 
kind regards
