SUMMARY: Printing in Epson Stylus with Solaris and Ghostscript

I send again this message due to a misunderstanding of the norms of this
I forgot to correctly fill the Subject field.

I have found the correct way to print in Epson printers with Ghostscript.

The docs that come with the package (devices.txt) recommends to use
the stcolor device. This driver doesn't come with the binaries for Solaris
on various places, neither in the source code versions (GS V 5.10).

The only way to do this is using the uniprint driver, the unified one, with
a command

  gs @stc800p.upp -sOutputFile=pepe.out -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -s quit

This works fine for a Epson Stylus Color 1520C
