Use the standard filers from Solaris. Assuming you've defined the
"content type" for your pritner
lpadmin -p lex1 -I postscript
On your print server, as root
# cd /etc/lp/fd
# for filter in *.fd;do
> name=`basename $filter .fd`
> lpfilter -f $name -F $filter
that will provied most basic filter and printer needs networked or local
If you have your priners.conf file setup up to accept Solaris extentions
you can use these files to do "psnup" or "enscript" features.
You can even make your own filters for pretty print and the likes.
