Re: Apple LaserWriter IINT
How are you going to connect to the LaserWriter? I have one connected to a
Mac that I print to using some software called lpDaemon. The daemon is
quite old, but it works on my system. The only other way I know of is to
use the serial port on the printer. I've not done that on Linux, but
wouldn't think it to be a problem. It is a Postscript printer.
One thing on the IINT: you can only switch between the serial port and the
AppleTalk port a limited number of times (around 100 or so I think). The
eprom or whatever in there gives out after that. The NTX doesn't have that
