Description Scott Walter 2002-10-11 12:45:31 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
dvips complains with `dvips: ! couldn't open output pipe', but I can cat file.ps
| lpr w/o difficulty. The problem disappeared when I replaced dvips with the
file from the 7.3 distro.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.dvips file.dvi

Actual Results:  dvips: ! couldn't open output pipe

Expected Results:  Like, a printed page on the Laserjet...

Additional info:

I checked the dvips version on 7.3 and 8.0, and it is the same, but the file
sizes differ. I did an upgrade to 8.0 from 7.3, not a bare-bones install.
