I spent the last few hours trying to figure out why jetroff
was not working on my Dell SVr4 system and discovered in the
Dell manual a reference to the need to specify '-T hplaser' to
the lp command.
The good news is that jetroff works now, but I can not
figure out how to make the printer type default to 'hplaser'
(so we don't have to specify -T hplaser each time). I've set
the content type to 'hplaser' trying to avoid the printer being
treated as 'simple', but I get the message 'There is no filter to
convert the file contents'.
Am I stuck entering -T hplaser whenever I want to print laserjet
Any reference to a manual would be a great help. I'm currently
limited to on-line manual pages and printed svr3 manual pages.
Here is the output of lpstat -p lj -l:
printer lj is idle. enabled since Thu Dec 26 15:19:08 EST 1991. available.
