Before I installed magicfilter (heavily recommended!), I used the next
script (named /usr/local/bin/gs600file and used as "gs600file file
[additional option]") to print .dvi files:

dvips $1
gs -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=cdj550 $2 -r600 -sOutputFile=$1.dj $1.ps -c quit
rm $1.ps
lpr $1.dj
rm $1.dj

I know it is not a state-of-the-art program, but it works fine for me
with my HP Deskjet 670c. Use your device (epson) and resolution
(360x180) with the -d, -sOutputFile and -c quit (this last must be the
last) options.

Sorry for not answering before your message (Wed, 16 Dec 1998 22:27:52
