I have just installed GCG vn 7.3.1-UNIX on a Sun IPX.  We have no printer
or plotter attached directly to the Sun, but most of our users have a
laser printer attached to their PC or Mac used a terminal with NCSA
telnet.  It is easy to print GCG graphics on the LaserJet attached to a PC
by simply sending them to the passthrough printer port.  That doesn't seem
to work for the Mac.

One way that does work is to first dislplay the graph on the Mac's monitor
in a TEK4107 window and then send it to the LaserJet 4M with Print
Selection.  However, that doesn't seem to work for the LaserWriter, as
Print Selection is not available.  With the same combination, Mac
plus LaserWriter, printing text seems to work (although not with GCG

Are there any instructions available for printing GCG graphics with a Mac?
