[FONT=&quot]Dear readers,

We have a printer problem with a UNIX system.
The OS is Unix IRIX 6.5.
We have connected a printer to the system. If we then make a test print it goes well. (IP printing)[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]But if we make a print from the "Origami" program. Then we see the print commands at the "SYSPRINTER" but they do not come out. [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]It looks like the "SYSPRINTER" is no longer linked to the "HPLJ4"
I added 2 pictures from the printer to this message.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
How can i solve this problem.
I think that i have to do something with LPQ.
I don't have any experiance with UNIX commandlines

Please help me,
Kind regards,

       dxmkfontdir - Create a list of fonts for the X server.

       dxmkfontdir [directory-names]

       The  dxmkfontdir  command  creates  files  that list font names and the font files to which the names correspond, for use when the X server
       starts up.  In each directory specified as a command argument, dxmkfontdir creates the directory's list of fonts and places it  in  a  file
       called fonts.dir.  If you omit arguments, dxmkfontdir creates a fonts.dir file for the current directory.

       The  fonts.dir file lists each font file and gives the name of the font in that file.  To obtain font names, dxmkfontdir searches the files
       in the directory for a property named FONT. If the FONT property is absent, dxmkfontdir uses the names of PCF (.pcf), BDF (.bdf), and  com-
       pressed BDF (.bdf.Z) files, omitting their suffixes.  If a font exists in multiple formats, the PCF format is used.

       When  the  X server starts up, it looks for a fonts.dir file in each font directory in the font path.  It also looks for a fonts.alias file
       in each directory.

Font Aliases
       You can create or edit the fonts.alias file to assign new names to existing fonts.  X clients can then use the alias names to request fonts
       from  the server.  A font alias file can be in one or any number of directories in the font path.  It consists of two columns, separated by
       white space.  The first column lists aliases; the second column contains font name patterns.  Aliases can reference  fonts  in  directories
       other than the one in which the alias file exists.

       To embed white space in the alias name or the font name, enclose the name in  quotation marks ("").  To embed quotation marks (or any other
       characters), precede them with a backslash (.   The following are sample entries from a fonts.alias file:

       courier10			   fixed
       /udir/sally/fonts/courier/10.pcf    "-adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--

       If the fonts.alias file contains the string FILE_NAMES_ALIASES alone on a line, each file name in the directory (without its  .pcf  suffix)
       is automatically translated as a font name alias. For example, a file named courier10.pcf would have the font name alias courier10.
