Re: printing on sparc


This printer speaks PPA unfortunatelly. But there's a filter pnm2ppa
earlier called pbm2ppa which works under i386.

I'll look at the sun pages.

	Hmm... ok, you have an ultra which is a totally different beast
	than the Sparc 5 and has it's own kernel tree....

	It might be worthwhile to search www.sunhelp.com for the parallel
	port specs. It sounds reasonable to assume the HP720 would work
	at least using lpd, since there are filters that speak PCL...

	I'll try to find a parallel printer and play with it a bit tomorrow
	to find out if the parallel port on older sparcs is usable.
