I have a printcap that works for ARIES software running on a SPARCstation1 serial port for printing graphics images only! The images are created by the ARIES HP PaintJetXL driver software, and are printed on an HP PaintjetXL.
DIP switch settings on the HP PaintJet XL were:
ddduudd where "d" is down and "u" is up
These DIP settings correspond to 9600 baud, even parity, XON/XOFF.

Here are a couple of other replies, I'm so excited about the pretty pictures I have not had a chance to try them!! ====================== From: "Jon Mellott" <email@example.com>
Here's our printcap for our PaintJet XL (you're probably just interested in the first one). We have separate queues for raw PCL PaintJet operation, and HPGL/2 (plotter) which requires the HPGL/2 cartridge.

I use a Freedom of press software to do all of my filters. You can use XDW and pbm plus do all of the translations there is a ppmtohp program to do the conversions ( check my spellings ) This is hooked to my parallel port on a 630 good luck # # HP PaintJet - Location 1404 # Carto # pnt2|hppj|pj2|HP PaintJe2t:\ :lp=/dev/stclp0:rw:sh:\ :sd=/usr/spool/lpd/pnt2:\ :lf=/var/spool/lpd/pnt2/pnt2-log:\ :af=/dev/null:\ :if=/usr/local/lib/sbii_mitre/paint_filter:\ :df=/usr/local/lib/sbii_mitre/paint_xwd_filter:\ :tf=/usr/local/lib/sbii_mitre/paint_xwd_rv_filter:\ :ms=cs8,-parenb,-parodd,-cstopb,-clocal,cread,- istrip,ixon,ixoff,ixany,opost,hupcl,-crtscts,-ignbrk,-brkint,-parmrk,-inpck,- ignpar,-inlcr,-igncr,-icrnl,-iuclc,-imaxbel,-isig,-iexten,-icanon,-xcase,- echo,-echoe,echok,-echonl,-noflsh,-tostop,-echoctl # Thanks to all the above for their cooperation and help.
