Description Gerald Teschl 2002-10-21 16:13:51 EDT
Description of Problem:
It is no longer possible to print dvi files directly using lpr.
This is due to a mising print filter entry for dvi files.
Adding a print filter

/TeX DVI file/          pipe/postscript/        /usr/bin/dvips -f

fixes the problem.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-10-21 16:16:49 EDT
This is intentional.  Use 'dvips -o output.ps; lpr output.ps' instead.
Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2002-10-21 16:26:31 EDT
I do not understand the intetion here? Why not making it userfriendly?
Moroever, people here are used to this and produce large amounts of
wasted paper;-(
