> Hello FreeBSD fans,
> After a lot of work, I managed to get my printer work with CUPS with
> appropriate filters. Now, I can print the test page using
> http://localhost:631 and also I can print any postscript file from
> cat ~/MyPostscriptFile.ps | /usr/local/bin/lp
> Note that I can not print using simple "lp" command as there a "lp" in
> /bin/lp. How can I print from inside the applications? Take Firefox or
> gedit for instance. How can I print from those apps using File>Print
> menu? I need to add stuff to those dialogs which open from File>Menu.
> There are only two choices "Printer to File" and "Print to LPR". Printing
> to LPR does not work at all as I think it references /bin/lpr instead of
> /usr/local/bin/lpr. (Snapshot attached) How can I add more options in
> this dialog?
> Right now, in order to print I choose Print to File "as PostScript" and
> use command line cat PostScriptFile | /usr/local/bin/lp to print.
