I don't know why lpr is looking for the file " ķe/ae.ps" !
Normally you would have /tmp/file_name.ps
I'm sure it's the key problem, but I don't know enough about Linux
to explain it.
Do you have another "print" application installed in your system ???
Because our "print" program knows about "-removedir" command.
