I set up a machine that way a long time ago (using ghostscript without
CUPS). It's possible; you'll just spent a lot of time struggling to get
your printcap entry right. Unfortunately, even after I succeeded I
failed, in the sense that printing was never boring -- and printing should
*always* be boring. Part of the problem was the cheap inkjet printer it
was driving, and maybe the drivers are better now. In the end, I gave up
and bought a Postscript printer, and life got immediately better.
Morale: Be care what you wish for. You may get it. ;-)
P.S. BTW, bottom-posting is the classic way. :-)
