Help: GhostView Help & XF86 3.1 Help. Please!!!

Post by Richard.Wo » Thu, 10 Nov 1994 21:48:14

I have just set up my Linux system, ver 1.1.18,
have got my HP Laserjet 4L working with GhostScript with

alias gsp='gs -sDEVICE=ljet3 -sPAGESIZE=a4 -q -sOutputFile=\|lpr'

added to the profile file. Just type gsp to print
the file.

BUT when using GhostView to view an image, try to print it and
the postscript script comes out, not an image. ?Have tried making
the alias name 'gs' instead of 'gsp' but no joy. Is there some other
config file I can change?? What command does GhostView call to
print out an image?

Also I have just managed to upgrade XF86 from V2.1.1 to V3.1,
but when using 'xdm' to log in, it shows an extra window, called
'Console output' on the bottom right of the screen as well as the
log in box. There is nothing else in this box and I cannot type in
it. How do I remove it? I've spent hours comparing 3.1 config files
with 2.1.1 and no changes remove it. Is is a debugging thing? The
binaries for XF86 3.1 came from LDR, release date Oct 94.

Replies by email, or here, either is OK.
