what is wrong, i have uploaded the binaries of gs 3.33 for my os SUNOS. compiled with the driver for the dj550
I have with no doubt the correct printcap file
my filter file is like this :

        /usr/local/bin/gs -q -sDEVICE=$DEVICE \
                -r$RESOLUTION \
                -sPAPERSIZE=$PAPERSIZE \
                -dBitsPerPixel=$BITPERPIXEL \
                -dNOPAUSE \
                -dSAFER \
                -sOutputFile=- -

        if [ "$SENDEOF" != "" ]; then
exit 0

I am not trying to print other file type than

what is wrong ?

Have you compiled in support for your printer. If it's not compiled it, it won't work unless the binary distribution says it is a supported printer.

My suggestion would be to download the sources, and compile it natively.
