Can't print from Gimp
I have a problem printing from Gimp 1.1.14 to a "postscript"
printer. My printer doesn't even start printing, although "lpq" shows
the job in the que, and says that it's printing.
I tried printing to a .ps file, and then I can successfully view it
with "gv" and "xv". But if I try "lpr file.ps", then, again, nothing
I tried fiddling with postscript levels in Gimp, and that didn't help.
All other applications (such as netscape, for example), print to the
same printer w/o any problems.
FWIW, the printer itself is an HP DeskJet 697c, and I use it with
"hpdj" filter from ghostscript. My printcap looks like this:
,----[ printcap ]
| lp|lp1|HP Deskjet 697C Draft:\
| lp2|HP Deskjet 697c Normal:\
| lp3|HP Deskjet 697c Best:\
There's nothing at all in /var/log/lp-errs.
I can print using Gimp's own HP DJ driver, but I really don't like
that driver, for it's very inky.
Any help highly appreciated!
