I have installed netatalk and file sharing works fine.

I am trying to share a printer connected to the linux box. I set up avahi and netatalk according to the following guide:

The Macintosh seems to send the job to the linux box, but for some reason it never prints or shows up on the queue on the linux side. The logs say papd received the job, but I guess it's not executing the lpr command and I don't know why. Any ideas? Need more info?
