There's actually a wiki on this:

https://wiki.debian.org/HowTo/ChangeHostname

For cups you might look at 

/etc/printcap

the part after rm=
 rm=einstein

Of course that part is the part to the left of the first dot in your
fqdn.

Anyway, good luck (my hostname is incorrect, but as it has never caused
me any misery, I've left well enough alone up to this point).
