I thought of that after I posted. :( I probably did not install CUPS.

rex@syntax:~> rpm -q cups
package cups is not installed
rex@syntax:~> rpm -q lpd
package lpd is not installed
rex@syntax:~> rpm -q lprold
package lprold is not installed
rex@syntax:~/quotes> rpm -q lpr
package lpr is not installed
rex@syntax:~> which lpr

The printer works.
