Sounds like a packaging problem to me. Last I tried installing xprint
was a matter of unpacking, starting the daemon, exporting XPRTSERVERLIST
and logging out and back in.
Xprint output is a solid 100% better than PostScript/default. But then
I haven't tried it in a while.
I installed it on my CUPS-running system. The result is a printout in
max 100 dpi on all of my 6 laserjets and no proper color-to-greyscale
conversion (looks like black & white). Frankly, it looks like the result
from a dot-matrix.
I never had ANY problem with postscript directly from Mozilla... and I
really print a lot.
And I cannot understand why I would need yet another printing system on
my box, obviously requiring manual setup. I refuse to learn how Xprint
works in order to make my box print. (Hell, this is 2004 and I need to
fiddle in conf files to make a program print.)
One printing system per box should really be enough.
