panasonic kx-p2123 dot matrix printer


I am trying to work with an old Panasonic KX-P2123 dot matrix printer
with OpenSuSE 11.2.

The printouts from Vista are near letter quality, but under OpenSuSE 11.2,
the results are very poor that it is really difficult to recognize letters
at even font sizes of 12.

When I select a different emulation for the printer, I am getting somewhat
near letter quality results but very slow.

I am thinking about trying a different Linux distribution but thought I post
here first for some feedbacks.

if the p2123 supports postscript, I'd go that way. You could also try a quick distro like puppy or DSL.
