Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-18 22:04:20 EDT
(Full system install this morning, no_NO active/default locale)

Scenario: There is a HP Laserjet 4000 nearby. I configured a UNIX LPD printer,
and set up to print to it. I selected driver "postscript" in printconf-gui, as
this is a postscript capable printer.

When I try to print the letter test page, I get half a line of interesting
characters, not the expected test page.

Setting driver "direct" works around this, but I'd expect being able to classify
a postscript printer as postscript

Could you set up another machine with a local raw print queue at /tmp/lp0 
(owned by lp.lp) and point your machine at that to see what gets sent?  
I tried to reproduce this with: 
but I get a PostScript file, as expected.

It did work in the final release.
