Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.


In this posting this printer is considered an absolute "Paperweight", but this user is very content:

Works great on RedHat 5.2. Used printtool to set it as an HP LaserJet. 500k RAM is too little for a PostScript image (using Ghostscript). Using a 4Mbyte memory board ($95 board not plug in card) Postscript prints great, but slow. A Postscript option is available for this printer, but the option was not used in this evaluation.

Consumables/Refills: $150 new, $90 refill
