Re: Printing Problems
Ok, it was the zipdrive causing the non-printing .. but now another small
problem has started ... I am getting the stair stepping now...
This prints but stairsteps:
lp|Generic dot-matrix printer entry:\
This is the apsfilter setup ... but doesn't print anything at all .. just
keeps the files in the que:
lp|lp2|bj200-letter-auto-mono|bj200 auto mono:\
Any ideas what I have going wrong here? I have tried eveything I know
from when I had this problem 15 months ago ... :\
