I tried lp.xdd but couldn't get background printing to work at all.
If I'm not wrong, lp.xdd adds the /dev/lp device which is not used by anything.

What was the intention of lp.xdd ?

I was guessing that the printer control panel could be directed to the lp
device but it didn't print anything.

It's just a character device that outputs data to the printer... So,

cat `some-text-file` > /dev/lp

would print that text file.
