What are you trying to print? The LJ6L only handles ASCII text and PCL
control codes. Additionally, it needs to either have text formatted
with additional carriage returns or to treat linefeeds as carriage
Many people use apsfilter from the ports to handle print conversion. I
prefer setting up my own simpler, smaller filter, like "Simulating
PostScript on Non PostScript Printers" in the Handbook "Advanced Printer

It should work fine. Please post your /etc/printcap.
