When in doubt of what driver to use, you can almost always select HP 
Laserjet III for generic 300dpi printout. This driver has worked 
perfectly in countless occasions in a wide range of laser printer 
products, not necessarily of HP.

RE: HP1320 PCL6

2007-06-08 Thread Alexander K. Beros

Hello Nikola,

Thanks for the warning in (1).  It took so long to install that I would 
normally have thought something had gone wrong.

The actual path to SETUP was different, but after I found it everything worked 
well.
I tried a few of the HP drivers, but the one that finally worked was the 
deskjet driver (#160 in section 3) -- just for the record, my precise printer 
model is:
hp LaserJet 1320 PCL 6 (60.41.41.0)

Thank you very much for your help.
Best regards,

Alex Beros





Please answer to the list.

The manual explains basic things only. You need a more sophisticated
filter for advanced tasks. Do the following:

(1) Install print/apsfilter. Please be careful about default page
format (A4 vs. Letter) since apsfilter will install several other
packages according to this. Apsfilter is not very big itself, but
has a lot of dependencies.

(2) Run /usr/local/share/apsfilter/SETUP. I'm not 100% sure what driver
you should choose on the main menu (hpijs is recommended for your
printer), but please try drivers from sections 3 and 4 of apsfilter
drivers list (concentrate on PCL support).

(3) Try various printing qualities, colour modes, and dpi settings in
order to make the best output of the test page.

Apsfilter will allow you to print all possible formats (incl. DVIs,
PDFs, images, HTML, Gimp's XCF and much more) using lpd directly.

The driver numbers depend on your installation, and therefore #160 is
not the unique designator. (I expected you would pick up one of LaserJet
drivers [with pcl6?], but if DeskJet driver does the job...) Anyway,
nice it works.

I tried quite a few driver, just out of curiosity, and that was the only one 
that worked was in the 

group 3) printer driver natively supported by ghostscript
and had the
name HP Deskjet [deskjet]

Thanks again for everything,

Alex

 I am using lpd for printing.  I have no problems with text and PS

 dvilj2p: FATAL--dvilj2p: can't find DVI file dfhp2417.dvi
 
 If you have some hint what I am overlooking I would be most grateful.

What is the contents of your /etc/printcap?
