Printer Daemon

Since I installed release 2.4.1 I have been having a problem printing. I 
am using a USB printer.

My printcap is

prt01|lp|lp1|Default Printer
My filter is

/bin/cat && printf"\f" && exit 0
exit 2
When I try to print and enter lpq I see

Warning: No daemon present

I then enter lpc start all and the file prints. When I try to print a 
second file I get the same
warning and need to enter start again.

The log file just says lpd startup.

Does anyone have an idea what is wrong?

Thanks, Jim Chapman
