Not sure which version you are running. I recently installed
OpenOffice 1.9-118, and the printer administration command has moved
to /usr/bin/

Some parts seem a bit buggy though. When started, it only shows a Generic
Printer (lpr) as installed. After choosing anything (for example,
"Properites" and then cancel immediately) the list gets updated to show all
installed CUPS printers. Printing through CUPS works fine though.

Hope this helps.
