How do I set up Lexmark laser printers on Unixware 7?
Posted on 2004-09-02
I need to print PCL forms on Lexmark T630 and E321 laser printers connected by Zonet TCP/IP print servers to a SCO Unixware 7 system. I'm a UNIX novice, though I have 30 years in computers. I am unfamiliar with UNIX printing systems.
I have successfully installed the Lexmark Unixware 7 drivers for the printers we're using and confirmed the installation through Lexmark's "lexprt" utility. These drivers support Postscript and PCL. I've set up a logical device and print queue for one of the T630s and have no difficulty using it as a text printer. However, we cannot print PCL forms to it.
Apparently, our packaged application looks to data set up by the SCOAdmin/Printer Setup Manager to determine the capabilities of a printer. To make this printer's capabilities known, we need to add entries to the /usr/lib/scoadmin/printer/model.stz file, which in turn requires an entry in the terminfo database. I've tried to build these entries, but they're not well documented for someone unfamiliar with UNIX printing.
