Do you mean mime.convs and mime.types? I have not changed any of them (i.e. the
# is still in front of application/octet-stream) and I don't have option -oraw
in printer setup.

I have no further advice since this should work OK. Only comment I may add is
that in order to prevent raw file printing you should comment
application/octet-stream in mime.types which is the way it has always been.

Erik

I uncommented both files as I understand that this is the only way to
make  a printer to  work if you want to share it in a mixed
windows/linux environment.
Have you read my other post about file dimension??
Tnx for help
