Hi guys, this is my first post here.
After installing slackware 9.1 on my Dell Inspiron 8200, I got a nice email
from Patrick Volkerding saying, among other things, that in his opinion,
using apsfilter is the way to go with printing.
So I tried running /usr/share/apsfilter/SETUP, and had some partial success.
I can now print plain text files, but I can't seem to print postscipt files.
The printer is an HP LaserJet 8500. My /etc/printcap file is below.
I used to use RedHat ("use" is the key word here), to typeset LaTeX
and TeX documents, among other things.
Any ideas? TIA.

# APS1_END - don't delete this
