I have installed a2ps version 4.13b-4.3 on Debian 3.1 stable with the

cannot get any of the three footers to print. I have gone over the
documentation, search the archives, and reinstalled the program but
nothing seems to work. I wonder if the code for the footers was
complied into this version. I didn't download the source code and
probable couldn't understand it if I had it in hand. Does anyone
understand what is happening and have any suggestions as how to fix it.
I don't know a2ps, but in other situations I have has trouble with
footers when my print system was configured for A4 paper and I was
using USLetter paper which is slightly shorter. Look for config.
settings of a2ps
Not in this case: I have set the printer to letter and used
--medium=Letterdj for a2ps and then output to file: no footers show on
the page in gv.
But you are right: setting the printer to letter when you have letter
size paper is critical, as I found out the long way ;-)
