Printer Setup


I am using slackware 10. Installed apsfilter and the latest ghostscript. My printer is not listed in apsfilter but on I downloaded a ppd file for my printer. I am using lprng and not cups. How do I get this driver downloaded added to apsfilter or ghsotscript.

What's your printer model? Does it use the parallel port?
I would suggest you to use CUPS since it seems to be "the future" on linux printing
