use the source, luke^w/me
once in a while (i.e. twice a year) I want to print out a mail (usually confirmations from flight tickets or stuff like that); up to now muttprint did a great job. not today: the result was some illegible resized-image-like sheet of paper. fiddling around with options, reading stuff didn't help for some time. until I detected the following line in muttprint's source code:
if ($Config{PRINT_COMMAND} eq "CUPS") {
it's there in muttprint --help (& in the identical manpage) too:
CUPS support is turned on by "CUPS" (or set it to any command
which containes the string "$CUPS_OPTIONS").
well that's it: setting PRINT_COMMAND="CUPS" in ~/.muttprintrc does the job. & no, I don't really understand it; & I think the problem was not on muttprint's end but somewhere in CUPS' depths ...
