Configure print queues for BSD-based systems
Edit the /etc/printcap file to include the following entries:
In the example, short_printer_name identifies the printer to the user, node_name identifies the printer on the network, and remote_printer_name_argument is the print queue designation (such as text, raw, binps, auto, or user-defined).
If your printer does not support automatic switching between PostScript, PCL, and HP-GL/2 languages, use the printer’s control panel (if available) to select the printer language or rely on the application to select the printer language via commands embedded in the print data.
In the example, printer_name_1 and printer_name_2 see the printers to be spooled. You can spool several printers. The following example shows the command to create the spooling directories for printers used for text (or ASCII) printing and for PCL or PostScript printing.
