Re: Websites on a Matrix Printer
> Being a teacher I want to buy some cheap and relieable Oki printer
Nowadays these printers aren't cheap, take a look:
Some models have epson and ibm emulators, and some print
graphics too, so the installation can not be complicated.
If you are going to buy a text only printer, then you can
make a filter for lp using any of the text browsers that
Jeremy said, even using aview to print ascii art images.
Then set that filter in the printcap file as the default
printer. I think with cups is easy too.
I like the simplicity of the ribbon, and the quality of
these printers are good enough for manuals, reports and
other things. I've been thinking about this for a while,
but I don't know if it is a really cheap printing solution.
May be Hp printers with refilled cartridges or toners? I
know... is a mess, but if you can do it yourself is really
cheap, and the quality is infinity best. And the neighbors
don't kill you when you print a list at 1 am!
