Would ANYBODY know what is happening here ?
I am unable to print postscript files to my printer when using
the 'LPR' command either at the shell prompt or from within a
program such as Netscape, Mosaic, or Ghostview. I have been able
to get 'GS' to convert a postscript file to a format my printer
understands. By using a command such as:
'gs -sDEVICE=epson -sOutputFile=tiger.ps tiger.epson'
And I can print it. BUT ONLY if I log in as ROOT and use the
'cat FILENAME > /dev/lp0'
If I try to print a postscript file or a converted file using
'LPR' or the above mentioned programs the output is just codes
and not a graphic. In my 'printcap' I do have a reference to an
input filter. The filter is:
'/usr/bin/gs -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -q -sDEVICE=epson -sOutputFile=-'
But 'LPR' just prints the codes ! Even on a converted file !
