Well I messed with it for a few hours and could never get it to print
anything as nice as the test page (which was really nice).  I read all
the docs but could not get the results I wanted on the printer.  I am
sure that it is a good package as many people do use it.  I just could
not get it working correctly.

That said, maybe someone else can point you to what need fixing.

Magicfilter took less then 5 minutes to get working and another few
minutes to set up a2ps and i was up and runing.  I needed a working
printer so I took the path of least resistance.

BTW, you should set your lines to a 70-72 char length for this list.

Good luck!  You should be getting responses from those who did get
apsfilter running.

Everyone can be taught to sculpt: Michelangelo would have had to be
taught how __not to.  So it is with the great programmers.
