I have two machines, both running Debian Sarge, both using KDE, and
each having a HP laserjet printer.
The first machine has a Postscript-compatible printer - an LJ1300 - that
works fine for .PDF and .PS files,
and I can recommend it.
The other machine, has a HP LJ1100 printer. This does not understand
postscript directly, and requires
a filter between ghostscript and the printer. (I guess that would
create the raster needed to print).
I have the recommended filter file - called "hpijs", but have not yet
discovered where or how to install it,
set it up, or configure KGhostView to use it.
Could someone please point me to the right bit of the "fabulous manual",
so that I can RTFM ?
I haved looked at "CUPS" and "foomatic", but it is not clear whether
they are needed or desirable.
There is such a huge variety of Linux-printing material on offer that
it is hard to know where to start !
