Hello All-

For the past week, I have blown a few thousand sheets of paper through my
IBM 6400 line printer trying to get lp5250d to print ASCII text to print
properly on this printer. Despite all the research I have done, I have not
been able to find any info on how to force CUPS to allow the ASCII through
without converting it to postscript. I have tried the '-o raw' option, but
then the line feeds and carriage returns are dumped.

The printing works properly via a laser printer, but since we have to
output thousands of pages a day, this is definitely not a long term

I am using RedHat Enterprise Workstation, but I had also the same problem
with RedHat 9.0

If anyone has been able to get lp5350d to work properly with CUPS and a
line or matrix printer of any brand to work properly using straight ASCII
rather than postscript, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.


p.s. I am configuring this as a backup printing solution to use when the
SNA gateway server dumps at the service center.
