Hi, Ian -
I have added TAG back to the list of recipients again; please make
certain that you're CCing TAG on an all these exchanges in the future.
The only way that we get "paid" for doing this is by publishing the
discussions in the Linux Gazette, where the rest of the community gets
to benefit from them. Several of us do offer private support and
tutoring, but those are *not* free.

Well, since you were printing to /dev/lp0 (as I recall), then - yes,
"LPT1:" would be the equivalent. However, your nose should not be
required - the choices from that point forward should be obvious.
"Epson" for a manufacturer, and "Stylus 660 + gutenprint"... doesn't
seem like it could get much simpler than that.
