turkish character printing poblem

Hi all,

I m using RHEL 3 AS. Oracle DB and Oracle AS running on this server.
There is oratest user and when i try to print a report the output is not correct.I mean Turkish character is not correct.
To maintain this issue i created a new user and set environment variables about Turkish characterset. Then i printed a txt file created on GNOME desktop environment. It was OK. But when i tried to print on the command line using "lp" and "lpr" commands it was not OK.
What can i do to fix this problem? Main problem is report printing.

I am using Unisys UDS2055 printer (IBM ProprinterII and Epson LQ 2055 drivers are same driver).

A quick workaround can be a printing in pdf format, then you print those pdf. Can't answer more .

here is the solution

Do not forget that a2ps supports only iso9 encoding.

iconv -f utf8 -t iso88599 YOUR_FILE | a2ps --encoding=iso9
