Can't print on OS X; lock

Hello. I am rather new to things, so please don't speak too
I am running OS X Jaguar on a G4, older model, and used the xfree86
package, not the apple x11 package, as I couldn't track it down since
the release of Panther. Sigh... I used Fink to install Gnucash 1.8.7
with the usual stops to install some wayward dependency. It has been
running well with 2 exceptions:
1. When I select a check and tell it to print, It does not print. The
"Print GnuCash Document" window comes up, and I say in the printer
space "lp " . In my xterm window it says "request id is
Stylus_COLOR_880-144 (1 files(s))" But nothing prints. I can go to
the other xterm window and say "lp filename.txt" and it will print the
named file. I have tried "lpr" and such, and that can work as well,
but not in gnucash. Nothing happens.
2. When I open gnucash, it says it cannot get the lock on the file, and
asks if I should open anyway. I say yes. It asks this every time.
I sure appreciate any help you can give. I've learned much just from
reading the digests.
