Angry I need to print fanfold paper.

I am using epson LQ300 printer. Instead of printing on a letter size paper, I need it to print on a letter fanfold paper. I have look all around the configuration, but can't find a solution for it. I am using Redhat 9. Any ideas to force the printer to do the job that I want.
Thanks for help.

Since the printer is tractor feed it will handle this part itself. Basically you need to select the paper size which is specified on the box.

You may also want to check for dip switches on that printer, to tell it the paper is 8.5x11 or the wide paper. You should have a setting in the printer properties. If you don't, you may have the wrong drivers for the printer.

It should work though. They had fanfold paper ages ago.
