Ghostscript & epson 9-pin

Ghostscript & epson 9-pin

Post by James Va » Wed, 31 May 1995 04:00:00

I've been trying to get ghostscript to work with:

gs -sDEVICE=epson (-r..)

and it seems to chew away for a while, a message saying to press Return
for more, etc, appears but there is no output to the printer and no
error messages to help. :(

There's a reference to a printer driver, does this mean /etc/printcap?

epson|epson: \
        :lp=/dev/lp1: \
        :sd=/usr/spool/lpd/epson: \

In /etc/profile I have "export PRINTER=epson".

I can't do what ten people tell me to do.  So I guess I'll remain the same.
