In the printer setup dialog, you also have to specify the print
command. I use "lp -s -dclj2550 -oraw". You'll need to adapt that to the
name of your printer.

BTW, I've got the following variables set in /etc/make.conf, so that the
base system will not override the cups binaries after the next
buildworld:

CUPS_OVERWRITE_BASE=3Dtrue
NO_LPR=3Dtrue

Since I don't use openoffice, I can't help you here.
