Since it is likely that you have screwed up your OO configuration files,
you need to undo what you have done. If you edited:
then you can just remove the directory:
open OO, and go through the wizard again.
You also need to undo whatever else you have done.
This will change the global setting if you run it as root or the user's
setting if you run it as that user.
A dialog will open. Select "Generic Printer" and click "Properties".
Under the: "Command" tab in the dialog that pops up, enter the command:
"kprinter". Click "OK".
Click: "Rename" and enter the name: "KPrinter" in the dialog that pops
up.; click "Close".
