I'm trying to get my HP LaserJet 6MP (6P + Adobe PS SIMM) setup on
my Netbsd 1.3.2 machine. I can get the printer to print out postscript
output, but the following things happen that I don't want:
* It prints out a bungled header page.
* It barfs when trying to print out non-ps (ie. lpr <foo>)
Here is the entry in my /etc/printcap file for the printer:
lp|ps|My HP 6MP:\
I've tried both /dev/lpt0 and /dev/lpa0, and both produce similar results,
in that the header page is printed and I"m not sure where I need to go
to disable it. I've looked through lpc, lpd, printcap man pages to no
Any help would be appreciated.
