Re: [PLUG] printing

This has always been my approach to printer for Linux.  Use a postscript printer.  No driver needed.  Done.

That said, I print to .pdf's more than anything else and have a image of my signature available if I need to "sign" something.  I even have a fax modem for those times where emailing can't be done.

Hence the reason I mentioned that my printer uses postfix.  You can
just print out-of-the-box without any special drivers, or if you want
you can go find the PPD and add that and you get a few more special
printer options.
