Hi. I'm trying to get Lyx working on my Slackwarer 3.0 system. It seems
to run fine unless I try and print :(.
The problem seems to be with dvips. If I tell Lyx to print to the
printer, it runs the document through tex, but dvips stops witha message
about not finding a configuration file for my printer (lp). BTW, there IS a
printcap entry for lp. It runs "magicfilter" and I have no problem printing
ascii text or postscript to me HP deskjet.
Now, if I tell Lyx to print to a file (filename.ps), dvips seems to get a
bit farthur. However, it still bombs out with a message about not being
able to find a scecific font. I DO, however, have the font it is looking
for. The font shows up in /usr/lib/texmf/fonts/tmp/pk/CanonCX, but dvips
can't seem to find it.
I know almost nothing about how this system is supposed to work, and I
can't figure out where it's even looking for the files it needs.
If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it. I've tried installing
every TeX package I could (except the obviously unneeded ones like unusual
fonts.) I've looked at every man page I could think of. The dvips man page
says to look in dvips.texi, which I don't have...
