I am trying to get a networked old HP printer to work. I have the following printcap entries for it, using gs filtering:
# Entry for device ljet3 (output to ljet3.raw, I hope) lp|ljet3|Ghostscript device ljet3:\ :lp=ljet3.raw:\ :sd=/var/spool/output/ljet3:\ :lf=/var/spool/output/ljet3/logfile:\ :af=/var/spool/output/ljet3/acct:\ :if=/usr/local/share/ghostscript/filt/indirect/ljet3/gsif:\ :mx#0:sf:sh:rs: and # Entry for raw device ljet3.raw ljet3.raw|Raw output device ljet3:\ :lp=:\ :rm=192.168.2.1:\ :rp=LPT1:\ :sd=/var/spool/output/ljet3/raw:\ :mx#0:sf:sh:rs: The ljet3.raw queue works perfectly! Of course, I have to send it either ascii with CRLFs or PCL, but it does print what I send to it. However, the lp|ljet3 filter does not send its output on to ljet3.raw. I am sure that I am doing something (subtle?) wrong in this entry, but I don't know enough to find it. Can someone either tell me what's wrong or (better yet) point me to documentation that explains how to do this correctly? Thanks! -Lyman _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
