Package: xfprint4
Version: 4.4.2-1
Severity: important

 I've a printer working properly with lprng but xfprint4 doesn't find
it. When I start xfprint4-manager on a xterm, the warning

** (xfprint4-manager:24831): WARNING **: unable to open printcap file : /usr/etc/printcap

is printed from time to time. The common location of the printcap file
is under /etc not /usr/etc... to put a link to the right file on the
searched path solves the problem but the right solution is to make it
open the right file (/etc/printcap).
