TeX -> dvips -> gs -> DOS -> dj500: printer hangs

Post by Randolph G Bro » Thu, 19 Aug 1993 22:31:27



Yes, I have read the printer FAQ.

I cp the output of gs to a dos floppy, which I then take to my
parent's dos box and try to print.

When I try to print the document, the printer prints a few lines, and
then hangs (with the busy light still on).  I have tried the SLS
binary with DEVICE=deskjet, and I compiled from sources and used
DEVICE=djet500.  Both experince the same problem.

I thought, hmm... could be that DOS/Unix crlf problem, so I tried
sending control codes to the printer setting it for more Unix-like
behavior.  No change.

Argh.
