Re: debian-user-digest Digest V97 #145
I have been using magicfilter for a while, and have had several good
experiences with it. I remembered last night why I had not used apsfilter.
I tried to install apsfilter last night, because there is no magicfilter on
bo. I got a new printer, and am trying to get it working right, while
preserving the setup for other printers.
The apsfilter setup program put my system in a hammerlock, two or three
times in a row, gobbling up all available swap space. I suspect either bash
2 or (more likely) the fact I am using the Aladdin ghostscript from
non-free (happily, except it doesn't have drivers for the HP870). The
apsfilter install script does interact, I think, with ghostscript. It froze
up at the point where it was going to display a tabular of deskjet printer
Why isn't there a magicfilter for bo? It works.
