Hi,

A plotter is a printer.  It should come with drivers and installation instructions.  If it has its own print server then it is easy to setup on Solaris.  Can you provide more details please.

Regards, Nisus

Adding a locally attached printer:
   lpadmin -p {printer} -v {interface} -T {printer-type} -I {content-type} -i /usr/lib/lp/model/standard
or
   lpadmin -p {printer} -v {interface} -T {printer-type} -I {content-type} -i /usr/lib/lp/model/dumbplot

Adding a network printer:
  lpadmin -p {printer} -v /dev/null -o protcol=bsd,dest={printer-address} -T {printertype} -I {contenttype} -i /usr/lib/lp/model/netstandard

Activating the printer:
accept {printer}
enable {printer}
lpadmin -d {printer}            # make this printer the default printer

In case you want to remove a printer, use:
  lpadmin -x {printer}

Variables:
{printer}       a name for your printer (should not start with a number)
{interface}    device name for interface (serial or parallel). If serial, you want to set options for baud rate etc as well
{printertype}  "terminal type" of your printer (look under /usr/share/lib/terminfo/* for your printer)
{contenttype}  What type of contenzt this printer ca handle (text, postscript and the like). If you don't know, use "any"
