i run into the same problem. After 3h of writing an augment script, which only 
returns the user-relevant printers from the more than 200 printers on our 
server, i now no more able to print from Firefox. 

I cannot imagine that no Xprint-user ever used the augment configuration 
option? Why this bug still exists, when this error already was reported in 
March 2004???

Is there any config option to specify a "special" spool comand?

Any hints to solve the problem are welcome.


Using SuSE RPMs, xprint-20040707release-0.9.001
