lpr "perfect printing.pdf"

The file exists, if I choose one that doesn't it tells me so. The commands just completes, with no feedback, and nothing from the printer. I've checked where cups-PDF usually dumps stuff but it's not there, so choice of printer isn't the problem. Any ideas?

UPDATE: Btw it also fails to print txt files as well, so I think it's probably just lpr that's stuffed. Reinstalling lpr hasn't done any good though :( Also I've checked again that the correct printer is default and it is.
