Thanks! that helps.

However, although now I can print from Acrobat, the print dialog 
box is ridiculous to the point of being useless. I cannot even tell it 
how many copies to print. This is pathetic. No options at all. I also 
have another printer installed and it never appears as a possibility.

I installed cupsys-bsd and cupsys-client via Synaptic32. Did I do 
something wrong?
