I don't know if this is the right group to post this, but hopefully it
Yesterday I bought a new Kyocery FS-800 Laserprinter with
KPDL2=Postscript Level 2 Emulation and tried to get it working with
Linux (Suse 6.0).
My first mistake was only to use a2ps files which I copied directly to
/dev/lp1(causing this to say "Printing" and than never printing anything
(waited for almost an hour for a print of my .bashrc)). Now I found out
that "premade" ps-files which were included in the distribution work
fine (except getting an error message on another sheet of paper telling
me, that the printer got a formfeed timeout, but this is solved easily,
I think) and creating one with gnuplot and printing this worked also
(with the above limitation).
I compared the PS-Fileheaders and the a2ps-files say Adobe-PS 3.0 and
all the others say Adobe-PS 2.0.
I think this could be the problem?
But how do I tell a2ps to print in PS-Level 2.0?
Sorry, I am new to configuring real PS-Printers and am relativly new to
Linux, so if this question is stupid, laugh about it but please help me
Many thanks for your answers,
