Description J G Miller 2004-01-06 00:59:56 EST
Description of problem:

In /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/a2ps.el and the compile .elc file,
the path to the a2ps program is incorrectly defined with

;;path to the a2ps program
(defvar a2ps-program "/usr/local/bin/a2ps")

when it should be define as

(defvar a2ps-program "/usr/bin/a2ps")

As a2ps-progam is incorrectly defined, the a2ps process fails at

(start-process "a2psprocess" "*a2ps output*" a2ps-program "-e")
