Perhaps there is something more that I need to install. However, when I
bring up the CUPS web interface, after naming the printer, I get to a
page where I am to select: "Make" & "Model" which I did, but whatever
driver I am now using does not work as well as the GhostScript device:
"epson" which is what I was using when I had to print manually. I see
no place in the CUPS web interface where the GhostScript devices
(drivers?) I have installed are listed.
My question remains *how* do I use the GhostScrip device "epson" as the
RIP (or driver if you would rather call it that) to print with CUPS?
Setup is simple for GhostScript:
but I can't find a way to input this into CUPS. It does not read these
if they are set as environment variables like a GhostScript script does.
Actually, I found where to set RESOLUTION & PAPERSIZE in the web
interface, but nowhere to set GSDEVICE.
CUPS is like using a sledge hammer to kill a fly. But at least I can
print although I have not tried fonts yet.
