I have a seemingly simple requirement which is to print out a simple, text file. No graphics.
I've tried using PrinterJob to do it but I can't seem to get it right.

The only special requirement I have is that I have to print it in landscape, also I will be printing on a unix network.

Any help is desperately required.

Cheers
Dominique

I see this one has you stummped.

The solution I have found is to execute a unix system command like so;

cmd = "lpr -o landscape file.txt"
Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmd);

And I spent a day coming up with this.
