SCO Unix/System V Printing FAQ

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.



Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

© December 2003 (various)

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open This is an old article about SCO Unix and is only left here for historical purposes. There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

Large print jobs fail on SCO Unix/System V remote printers

This is a silly artifact from the days when printing was expensive. The "mx" setting in /etc/printcap determines how large a print job can be, and if there is no "mx" then it sets the size very small. Add "mx#0" to have unlimited size. Just stick it in (between :'s) with the other stuff.
