Install 'cups-client' package, 'hplip' (if you have a HP printer)
or 'foomatic-db-engine' and/or 'guttenprint-cups' (otherwise). All 3
packages are available only in testing repo. That's the main problem here.

Then setup CUPS via web-interface on port 631 and use lp command to print
your document:

Also check this page at ArchWiki:

It's not a complete guide, but a good starting point.
