I have installed the libc5 package of gs (file name for archie:
gs-aladdin_5.03-0.99_i386.deb) and it worked out of the box. For
Stylus Color I use magicfilter with the following lines in its config
~/Incoming$ more /usr/sbin/stc-normal-filter
# Magic filter setup file for 720 DPI Epson Stylus Color series
# This file has been automatically adapted to your system.
0 %! filter /usr/bin/gs @stc600p.upp -q -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- -
0 \004%! filter /usr/bin/gs @stc600p.upp -q -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- -
# ... more lines follow ...
The other lines are identical to the filter create with
The @stc600p.upp means: read options from the file stc600p.upp, where
the uniprint driver is selected and some options for the driver are
selected. There is also the stc600ih.upp file for 1440x720 printing.
I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
