I'm surprised that IBM Proprinter did not make the list.
The reason is that I found that the driver for the Proprinter in Ubantu works
a whole lot better with a KX -P1092 than did the appropriate Epson equivalent.
In DOS days, I used the Epson drivers for the Panasonic printer.

Start with the Epson MX, then Panasonic KX, and try every printer until
you find the match. That's the only thing you can do. Probably the
Epson MX is the most generic and for banners that should be good enough.

I'm trying to help Evan setup the Commodore 64 in the MARCH
exhibit so that it can use The Print Shop to print banners etc. After
failing to get it to work with the Commodore 1526, I realized that a
graphics capable printer must be necessary. So in the setup menu for
The Print Shop, the following printers are listed:
EPSON MX-,FX-,RX- (80 OR 100)
STAR GEMINI 10X, 15X, DELTA, RADIX
C-ITOH (PROWRITER) OR NEC 8023
OKIDATA MICROLINE 92,93
BLUE CHIP M120/10, LEGEND 880
MANNESMANN TALLY SPIRIT 80
PANASONIC KX-P1090, 1091
My question is: MUST I have one of these printers or are there
others that are compatible, but not listed for some reason ? I have an
Okidata 120 (graphics capable) and a Star NX-1000C (most likely
graphics capable) that I will be trying, but it would be helpful to
know if I'm just spinning my wheels.
If you have any experience with this software on the C64, then
please let me know.
Thank You !
