Ink Jet Printer/Solaris

Post by Gary Kitagaw » Wed, 04 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I have a Sparc 5 running Solaris 2.5.  Off the parallel port, I have
an HP DeskJet.

This set up is great for printing out ASCII files (e.g. e-mail, code),
but I would like a bit more than this.

Does anyone know if any drivers for HP inkjet printers exist?  I
checked out the HP site, they have HP JetAdmin, but that's for a
printer on a network, not one off the parallel port of a machine.
Would NewSprint work??

You can use GhostScript for generate HP inkjet output from PostScript
files.
