I can add the printer in my setup sucessfully.  However, when I print a text file, I prints a paragraph like "stairs" without the line caraige return.  In Linux, it claims there is an option for LF->CRLF; however, I cannot find it.  How can I fix this problem manually ?  Without using unix2dos everytime before send the file to the printer.

Add a filter to your printer spooler.

A perl filter looks like:

#! /bin/perl -n
chop;
print "$_\r\n";
