I'm about to install Linux on my DX4-100 PC (8Mb RAM and 850 Mb hard disk). The
problem that I believe I have is that I want to connect up to an ink jet
printer (the Lexmark (IBM) 150c). As this is a new printer I doubt that there
are any Linux drivers for it. The linux version I have is slackware (2.1 ?) with XFree86.

Does any Linux user have this printer? Can anyone offer advice towards driver
development/example driver code for Linux?

1. HOW DO I - Configure an Inkjet Printer as a Postscript Printer ?


I recently downloaded StarOffice 4.0 and installed this application into
Linux. Unfortunately StarOffice uses PostScript, Their documentation mentions
something about a filter, This is something I don't know how to do; I got
printing to work under lpr but that is as far as it goes.

I can print from Staroffice but all I get is garbage even when I follow their
instructions for specifing a specific Printer.

My Printer is a Canon BJC-600e if that helps. Currently I save the file to a
*.ps and then use Ghostview to open and print the file, this seems to me a
long way to do this. Any help would be appreciated even if its pointing me to
documentation on printing filters , etc.
