If you want to print plain text, you have to either: (1) add carriage
returns to the document (I use the program unix2dos) or, as I understand,
there are programs that make the printer interperet a linefeed as a LF/CR
There should also be some dip-switches so you can enforce LF -> CR/LF
mode. At least the older Deskjet Plus has them.
