We are migrating a legacy app from SCO UNIX 5.05 to RHEL 4. The SCO box dumped text reports to a printer (printer1). The RHEL box dumps the same text reports to the same printer (printer1); however, the printout looks different. Our LAN users (Lusers) are complaining because the old print style is "better".
The font is the same (courier). The CPI is the same 16.7. The LPI is the same (6 LPI). The difference is the SCO BOX looks like 8 pt Courier and the RHEL box looks like 10 pt Courier.
How can I pass to CUPS to use 8pt courier? I imagine a solution like this
lp -dprinter1 -o someoptionhere filename
where the someoptionhere would be -o usefontpoint=8 or whatever...
