comment Cannot ping .local machines on one computer
@piernov It turned out I needed to install libnss-mdns as well. Now it works. If you turn your comment into an answer I can accept it.

comment Cannot ping .local machines on one computer
@piernov Avahi is running but the hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf says hosts: files dns. I tried changing the line to hosts: mdns_minimal and then to hosts: mdns4_minimal (restarting avahi-daemon after each edit) but it made no difference.

@konqui The macmini and raspberrypi is wired to my broadband modem (which is also a WiFi router). The compacmini is connected wirelessly to the same modem/router.

Did you try export CDPATH=".:~:'/This/Is/A/Really/Long/Path/That/Ends/With/My Name'"?

How come the GUI tool system-config-printer can get the name of the printer then?

@Debra ping -a gives me the same output as without the -a, i.e. no hostname.

When I run the nmap command it never seems to complete. The only output I get is Starting Nmap 6.40 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-10-20 16:52 CEST

@CristianCiupitu Thanks for the input but this gives me the same output as lpinfo -v; the socket URI with the IP address is displayed but not the name of the printer.
