Hello everybody.

First, excuse me for my english. I'm italian, and my english is very 
poor... :-(.
I've successfully installed tn5250 on my linux-box, following this fantastic 
how-to: http://www.chowhouse.com/~james/tn5250-HOWTO.pdf
For my HP lasejet color printer 4500, and for GENICOM label printer, I use 
this:

lp5250d env.DEVNAME=PRTxx env.IBMMFRTYPMDL='*HP4' AS400

Label printing works perfectly, not so for the normal printing. The pages are 
printed vertical instead horizontal, and font size is bigger than it was with 
windows. In windows emulator, obtaining this kind of printing, required only 
an operation: in the setup options of the emulator, it was enough to deselect 
the field containing "convert in ascii on as400", and everithing worked fine.
I tried also 

env.DEVNAME = device-name-to-use
    env.IBMMFRTYPMDL = *HP4
    outputcommand= scs2ascii|lpr -Pbar
    host = as400.example.com

but no results.

Thanks for your patience.

Regards, Michele.
