One good piece of software I've found is apsfilter, making it possible to print almost any kind of file with a simple command. It works with a large number of printers, including all postscript printers, epson printers, Deskjet printers and all printers supported by the ghostscript software.
You must have lpd/lpr installed, and ghostscript, and a few other things..
Install it, and print files with the command lpr, you can print a large number of formats, including postscript and LaTeX and compressed files and usual textfiles and... and apsfilter converts to the right format and prints it.. wonderful :-) It works with more than one printer too, I have a Citizen ProJet II (emulating a HP Deskjet), and a Fujutsi DL 1100 (emulating an Epson), and they both work very well.
