Netscape outputs stright Postscript so you need to set your printer up
as a PS printer which is what the HOW-TO will tell you how-to do, and
what most if not all Linux printers are set up like.

Easy. Click on the File menu, click on print.... ;-)
Seriously, does the document come out all strange looking? Readable
text, but not what you were trying to print? If you are trying to print the
page directly from Netscape, then you must keep in mind that Netscape, and many
*NIX apps in my experience, print in Postscript.
Is your printer Postscript capable? And if not, do you have your
printer filter (printcap, IIRC) setup to send the data stream through
My primary printer is a HP DJ550C, and it doesn't have Postscript
in it. I had to install a filter setup that send the print job to Ghostscript
first, then Ghostscript does all the conversion needed.
Hope this helps you out.
People tell me that I am overly cynical. Am I? And is this a bad thing?
I'm not sure, but I blame M$ Winblows for it. I never was this bad until
I had to deal with it on a daily basis!
Pardon me if this question has been asked before.
How do you print web page contents correctly in AIX?
When I click on the print button from the Netscape screen, a box appears
with 'lpr' in it. When I just click OK to continue, I get some text,
but a lot of garbage out of the printer.
Are there other command line arguments that need to be added with the
lpr command to make it print correctly?
I have several HP laser jets attached that I can print to including an
8000, color 4500, and a 4000.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
