  The solution is to upgrade X-Symbol to a later version.
+ * lpr commands don't work on MS-Windows with some cheap printers.
+ This problem may also strike other platforms, but the solution is
+ likely to be a global one, and not Emacs specific.
+ Many cheap inkjet, and even some cheap laser printers, do not
+ print plain text anymore, they will only print through graphical
+ printer drivers. A workaround on MS-Windows is to use Windows' basic
+ built in editor to print (this is possibly the only useful purpose it
+ has):
+ (setq printer-name "")         ;; notepad takes the default
+ (setq lpr-command "notepad")   ;; notepad
+ (setq lpr-switches nil)        ;; not needed
+ (setq lpr-printer-switch "/P") ;; run notepad as batch printer
  * On systems with shared libraries you might encounter run-time errors
  from the dynamic linker telling you that it is unable to find some
  shared libraries, for instance those for Xaw3d or image support.
