Ok, again, I was curious, so decided to print the tmp.ps file via the 
shell command.  It worked, printing the file I had attempted to do 
earlier from Scribus.  It wanted to print page after page of the same 
thing, but yet it did work with the lpr command.  Printing directly from 
Scribus causes the printer to output pages, but blank ones, no printing. 
  For some reason, it didn't remove the tmp.ps file as it should have. 
That could be another problem the developers need to look at.
