: Well it is pretty much the right answer. Ghostscript sources
: are easy enough to find in the net, but you can also find
: precompiled binaries for HP-UX in
: with easy-to-follow instructions.
: Any of the older Deskjet drivers should work somehow, but
: to get most out of the 890 you should install the driver
: from ftp://bonk.ethz.ch/gs-driver-distrib/...
: which seems to be down, but if that isn't temporary
: point Altavista to hp8xxs13.zip and you should find
: it easily enough.
Can you add drivers to gs without recompiling? Every time I
need a new driver, I wind up having to rebuild from scratch.
There's gotta be an easier way.
: Once you have Ghostscript installed you can incorporate
: it in the printer interface script so it recognizes and
: converts PS files automatically, making it appear just
: as if it were a PS printer.
