TurboPrint has a free version for non-commercial use, which I downloaded 
and installed. Actually it installed itself, even identified and added a 
couple of missing dependencies. It seems to work fine. Unfortunately, 
the "free" edition prints a big and colorful TurboPrint logo at the top 
of the page, rendering it useless except as a test. Guess I'll have to 
start saving for the paid version. At least I know there is a driver. 
Thanks again.

By the way, I couldn't help wondering. Are you any relation to Thomas à
