Subject: [SLUG] A PostScript file and a Printer.
Another, alright a recurrent problem with interfacing
Microsoft and Linux.
The Department has a colour printer, a HP 5. This is connected
to a PC running Windows. The PC is the only contact with the
I have a PostScript file on a floppy.
I'd like to send it for printing, but no-one can tell me how
this can be done. In the normal turn of events, where I had the
file on the mainframe, I'd use the Unix command lpr. However
in this case I have to load the file to the PC.
I'm reluctant to use Distiller, although I know it would work.
The end results always seem not to be up to the standard of a
simple PostScript print.
Any help etc.,
