I would talk to you campus mail admin.  Unfortunately, we will all be involved
in a retreat today, so Mike Schmidt will not be around to help you troubleshoot
this one.

Are you sending output directly to a printer or are you using TFILE to
send output to a text file that you then send to the printer.

The printing in my GUI relies on enscript being available.  Using lpr
directly will not format text appropriately for a PostScript(tm) printer.
I will have to check with Mike Schmidt on why you don't have enscript
available to you.


Sorry I have to dash, but I am late on getting going to our retreat.
