Waring, possible ID TEN T detected!

There's a program called find, not this intuitive but worth learning

It could solve the problem from the root with something like

find / -name refcard.ps -exec lpr {} \; 2> /dev/null

This  line  requires some  brain  and  some  learning, true,  but  the
documents should be on your  HD, unless you avoided installing the man
to save space. 

About the brain, you should have received like me a standard issue one
at least (or maybe a better one).

GNU books ARE free, and come in both printed and electronic form.

No excuses. 

BTW, buing a GNU book is a good way to finance FSF.

And from your too-lazy (ID TEN T like) point of view even freedom
itself is not free, since its defence has a cost.
