I would like to configure two network printers in yast as LPD/LPR printers. One is a HP Laserjet, the other is an Epson all-in-one.
The add LPD printer dialogue in the printer connections wizard insist that I enter a print queue name which I don't know. (Yast dialog says: "Queue Name (see the printer's manual) )
I also tried to add the printers in CUPS web configuration tool and it also expects that the queue added, like:
Add Printer Connection: lpd Examples: lpd://hostname/queue
or in the CUPS help pages (http://localhost:631/help/network.html):
What is the value of this queue? Where can I find it? If I understand correctly this is not the same as the "printer queue name" or printer name I specify when I set up the printer queue.
I searched both printer's manuals for queue but could not find mentioning of queue in ip address.

I don't understand why you insist about "lpd", any cups printer can be called by lpd command (AFAIK)
so simple add a printer in cups wen interface. You have examples right on the page. For networks printers I always use "socket"
enter a print queue name which I don't know.
I beg it's only the printer name you want to see in menus
after that you have to find the ppd from brand/model
