Printing from X file write

I'm trying to print from X file write (xfw)
In the print dialog there's an entry lpr -P <Printername> which I've tried to change to lpr or lpr -P <My_Printername>.
None of these works if the file is a new file that has not been saved!
As soon as I save the file with a name, it can be printed. This must be a bug?

What exactly do you mean? If you have a solution, I'd appreciate if you would be more specific in your answer!

Do you use cups? If so change lpr to lp and forget the rest. This should bring up the print dialog.

Re: Printing from X file write

lp <filename> should just print the file to the default CUPS printer.

TIP: Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Re: Printing from X file write

Yes I understand all your suggestions. But you are missing my point! It works only if the file has been saved once. I was just making a quick note and wanted to print it without saving first. That cannot be done.
