D/L The enhanced printing system from
lpr.sourceforge.net using the sh utility to d/l the
necessary binaries for my distribution.

my problem is
I cannot print any .ps file by issuing the following
command

lpr -P lj4000 any.ps

I am able to send PS test prints from Printtool as
well as text.
the following rpms are installed

hp-ppd-0.3-1
printfilters-2.02-1
libprinterconf-devel-0.3-1
libprinterconf-0.3-1
printtool-4.03-1

the Printcap file has the following
##PRINTTOOL3## DIRECT POSTSCRIPT 1200x1200 letter {}
HPLaserJet4000_PS Default {}
lj4000:\ :sd=/var/spool/lpd/lj4000:\ :mx#0:\ :sh:\ :if=/var/spool/lpd/lj4000/filter:\ :af=/var/spool/lpd/lj4000/acct:\ :lp=/dev/null:\ :ppdfile=/usr/share/postscript/ppd/HP_LaserJet_
4000_Series.ppd:

Any ideas?

    What happens when you try to print a ps file?
    Does nothing come out does the printer "blip"?
    What happens when you try to print a text file?

    I hope you are monitoring this. The support request was
    created by "nobody" which means that you wern't logged in
    when it was created and so I have no way of knowing how to
    respond to you.

    No idea there. Are you able to print text files?
