Description Gerald Teschl 2002-04-08 06:58:58 EDT

If I print a ps file using

pstops <options> file.ps |lpr

the raw postscript commands will be printed as text.

If I print the file as

pstops <options> file.ps > tmp.ps
lpr tmp.ps

it works fine. The printer is a network postscript printer
(HP LJ 4000N) set us as UNIX printer (lpd).
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-04-08 07:04:04 EDT
Please attach file.ps and say what options you are using to pstops.  Also please
attach /etc/alchemist/namespace/printconf/local.adl.
