Does look that way.

I just looked at the printer setup in Lucid and the following OKIs have 
drivers - maybe one of them will suit you:

Microline 182, 192+, 600CL, 620CL, IBM Compatible 9-pin; and ML 320, 
321, 380.

Also the Epson LQ-500.

Quite often the driver for a closely numbered printer to the one one has 
will work. For example, my printer is an HP 8450 Photosmart but the HP 
8400 driver works perfectly with the printer.


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
