I'm using KDE 3.1 on RedHat 7.2 and I simply want to print a plain ascii text 
When I do this, I get

The file format text/plain is not directly supported by the current print 
system. KDE can try to convert this file automatically to a supported format. 
But you can still try to send the file to the printer without any conversion. 
Do you want KDE to try to convert this file to application/postscript?

If I select "Convert", I get an error

A print error occured. Error message received from system:
Error while filtering. Command was: enscript -M %psu -p %out %in.

OK, I do not have enscript on my System.

Question: what is the easiest solution for this?
I do have a2ps on my system - how can I set up a filter for this?
Has anybody an example?
Best regards/Schöne Grüße
