Re: Printing question

Install foomatic and put something like:

       :af=/usr/pkg/share/foomatic/ppd/HP/HP-OfficeJet_G95-hpijs.ppd: \
       :if=/usr/pkg/bin/foomatic-rip: \\

OK, did that, but it's doing strange stuff.

Here's my /etc/printcap file:



If I just take a simple text file a.txt and send it to the printer with

        lpr -P lp a.txt

The output seems to be missing a whole lot of \r characters! The first line prints correctly, the second line is printed one line below BUT immediately to the right of the end of the first line, etc. And nothing line-wraps, so pretty soon everything is printing beyond the right-hand margin. I assume I need some sort of input-filter to insert something to make it start new lines at the left margin?

Using enscript to encode the text file as Postscript and sending the result to lp-ps results in a ghostscript error - it apparently cannot find a font named "Courier-Bold". I don't know why it would want a bold font since I'm just printing a plain text file. I _do_ have the ghostscript-fonts-8.11nb1 package installed, so why can't it find the font? I would expect Courier to be a rather common font. :) Here's an excerpt from the lpd log file:
