An apt-cache search "line printer" on my debian machine turned up a few 
results.  One of them was lpr and cups wasn't mentioned.  So I removed 
cups entirely and replaced it with lpr.  When I try printing I'm pretty 
sure I got a file printed out correctly.  I will find out later, but it 
appears cups just isn't the right kind of tool for dot matrix printers. 
I may be able to increase the font size with troff inside of a file then 
send that out to the printer too.  Have to read up on troff or actually 
groff commands for that and find out.
