before I use up too many trees experimenting, could some kind soul tell
me how I can get OpenOffice to print to this printer. This is the first
time I have tried to get anything printed from FreeBSD.
I'm following the handbook. I think the basic setup is ok, I can get
text printed using eg
# lptest 20 5 | lpr -Plp
If I try to print the postscript program given in the handbook
100 100 moveto 300 300 lineto stroke
310 310 moveto /Helvetica findfont 12 scalefont setfont
(Is this thing working?) show
# cat <ps-file> |lpr -Plp
I get the whole text of the file not just "Is this thing working?".
The printer has various emulations, it is set to PCL 6 and I can't
change it (not my printer)
Printing from OpenOffice just produces screeds of garbage, starting with
%!PS so I presume the text of the postscript that OO has produced.
The bit I'm stuck on is in section 22.214.171.124 Simulating PostScript on Non
PostScript Printers (which I presume is what I need), specifically
setting the device. gs -h doesn't show this printer or any Kyocera
printer. So either what should I set Device to, or how do I get
ghostscript to know about this printer?
I'm using 8.1-RELEASE, openoffice.org-3.2.1, ghostscript8-8.71_6
