Hi I,
had configure my /etc/printcap like the example in the freebsd handbook but I'm not 
able to print postscript files I thing I  have a little misstake in the gs section in 
this script  
/usr/local/libexec/hl7x0 because I can print plaintext files.

my printer is a brother HL-730 

could any one give me the answer where is the misstake that I'm not able to print ps 
file. 

thanks!!!

best regards

    #  capture the stderr output from Ghostscript and mail it back to
