Using this hack with DJ 870 over at
Authored by: bullcreek on Nov 27, '01 05:04:44PM
Yay! I finally got this to work! Thanks very much for your help. As it turns out, the second suggestion you offered, with the appletalk address appended and with quotes, worked. One problem with the config you had and the DJ870cxi. When specified for 600dpi output, things printed about twice normal size. When I changed the output resolution to 300dpi, things looked normal. Suggestion to all: Be sure to check the page setup before attempting to print. Unless the correct printer is selected and the output options are correct, you can get weird results. First thing I printed came out at like 14,000 x enlargement. I'm also getting some kind of weird blue background when printing from Entourage, but this doesn't seem to happen with anything else. Here's what my lpd.filter file looks like:
#!/bin/sh

GS=/sw/bin/gs
GS_FONTPATH=/sw/share/ghostscript/fonts:/sw/share/ghostscript/7.02/lib
export GS GS_FONTPATH
exec $GS -dNOPAUSE -q -dBATCH -sDEVICE=cdj550 -r300 -sOutputFile=|"/usr/bin/atprint deskjet870C:DeskWriter" -
Thanks again!
