PostScript version of the Epson EPL-5900
Epson provides a free (LGPL) driver for this printer. With this
the printer should work to its full extent.
Unfortunately, Epson's "eplaser" driver (or
perhaps the printer's firmware) is somewhat buggy. It
prints most documents, but images converted to PostScript with
"convert" or by the built-in filters of CUPS leads
often to incorrect printouts (stretched by a factor of 3 or 4 in
horizontal direction). So it is recommended to use this printer

delivered with the PostScript module, use the PPD files for
Windows NT 4.0, they should work with all spoolers/applications
under free OS.
Further tests with the "pxlmono" driver did not show
this problem. The printer works perfectly in 1200 dpi with this
driver, only full-page photos take very long to be
