I'd still like to make plain-text printing work if I could just figure
out how to insert the go-back-to-left-margin command!

You could try "magicfilter" from the package of the same name in "pkgsrc".
I use the following entry with an HP Laserjet 4:


That allows me to print plain-text, postscript and a lot of other formats
with "lpr".

Much better with the text, but graphics now print only in grayscale.

I guess I need to tweak the filter's ghsotscript command a bit to match my printer, rather than the generic deskjet.

Thanks to all who helped make this simple task less daunting!  :)
