my printer is Postscript printer, which was the standard printing language at some time. When the apsfilter was still available, I could just print anything. Now it is quite an issue. Is there a way to bring this port back to life? Or provide something similar? The handbook offer a printer filter that can print ASCII and Postscript, which is not quite sufficient today, when most programs print in pdf-format.

Hoping for a positive answer,
