Description

There are apparently still enough Kerberized printers out there that we should put out an easy fix if we have one. Additionally, it would be nice to have a second GUI printing method if CUPS.MIT.EDU fails for whatever reason.

To that end, can we distribute an /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc that contains the following?

gtk-print-backends="cups,file,lpr"

Doing that on my debathena-workstation machines creates a new "Print to LPR" entry in the GUI, which provides a window in which to type an LPR command. Additional testing is probably a good idea, but this seems like a trivial fix.
