Some months ago someone posted a nice printcap entry + 
lp filer prog for the deskjet series. They work really
good for me. You can print in a variety of font sizes,
paper orientation, or print directly dvi or ps.
If you want this, I can mail it to you, or put it on ftp.

I would be a real Good Thing to update the distribution
printcap and lp filter set. Is someone collecting such things?
