I can't get printing to work from Abiword, Beaver or Leafpad.
Abiword says it cant find the fonts though they are there and puts up an error message about Ghostscript.

I'm away from home right now, won't be able to try on my computer-with-printer until Saturday.

What happens with beaver and leafpad?

Sorry to be a bit late but I've been away too.
In Beaver and Leafpad I get no response at all. The jobs don't even show up in Xpdq.

I got Beaver and Mozilla to print.
Not Abiword though.
It seems that Ghostscript can't handle the Postscript generated by the new Abiword.
Also, lprshell, the text-to-postscript converter script, uses Abiword to do the conversion, but it worked on a couple of files I tried from Beaver. Probably because they are simple text files.

This is a problem. I have to upgrade Ghostscript to see if that fixes it, but that is a major operation as Ghostscript is in the guts of Puppy.
I might have to hold that fix over to v1.0.3.

I didn't try printing from Mozilla so I'll go back and retry Beaver also Mozilla.
