Printing to remote laser printers / print filters

Printing to remote laser printers / print filters

Post by Patrick Ca » Sat, 08 Feb 1997 04:00:00



I've set up our 3.2.5 AIX box to print to some remote laser printers,
in /etc/qconfig.  But printing a standard UNIX file like /etc/motd
results in no carriage returns - just line feeds - and only the
first line comes out on the print out.  Can anyone tell me
where/how to put in a filter to insert CRs?

thanks in advance

/etc/qconfig entry:
tawap3:
        device = tawap3
        up = TRUE
        host = tawap3.wcc.govt.nz
        s_statfilter = /usr/lpd/aixshort
        l_statfilter = /usr/lpd/aixlong
        rq = lp
tawap3:
        backend = /usr/lpd/rembak
