You possibly can even construct-up artwork print the particular recipient's identify around every balloon artist (http://balloon-artist.com/) being a lot more specific.

Just for the benefit on anyone wondering which path to take in a similar circumstance, here are some notes from today's attempt to get my Brother MFC-7340 printer working in DSL. It only took me an hour, that's pretty good for setting new things up with DSL. Note that this method does not use CUPS, I haven't tried using CUPS in DSL, though it is available from the MyDSL Repository.

The instructions here on the Brother website (http://support.brother.com/g/s/id/linux/en/instruction_prn3.html?c=us_ot&lang=en&comple=on&redirect=on) do actually work for DSL (once you eventually find them...).

The one exception is that dpkg has to be run as root, and the /var/spool/lpd/MFC7340 (the name of the last directory will depend on your printer model) ends up being created without user permissions. This means that when you try to print, lpr will come back with something like:
MFC7340@box: printer 'mfc7340', chdir to '/var/spool/lpd/MFC7340' failed 'Permission denied'
The same error is also generated when the "lpc status" command is tried, which normally shows you the status of configured printers.

To fix, simply use chmod to make the directory for your printer open to all users (as root):
chmod a+rwx /var/spool/lpd/MFC7340

And don't choose this moment to forget that folders need to be marked executable, like I did at first!

Now printing should work from all applications, and directly from the command line for text files with "lpr":
lpr mytesttext.txt

One note about the MFC-7340 Driver (V. 2.0.2-1, 25/06/2008, http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadlist.aspx?c=au&lang=en&prod=mfc7340_us_as&os=128):
I've found that on some long or complex files, the printer seems to stall on a page and coat the rest of that page with random vertical lines, before continually spitting out blank pages until the print job is canceled at the printer. This also happens in Knoppix 7.2 (on the same PC) where I have the same driver installed via CUPS, so I expect it is a driver problem. In any case it happens quite rarely. I couldn't find any alternative drivers that worked when setting it up in Knoppix.

After this problem occurs, I've found all print jobs are printed blank until the printer is reset (turned off and on).

Looking at this wiki page (http://zdoom.org/wiki/Compile_ZDoom_on_Linux) about compiling Zdoom (I haven't checked zandronum, but presumably it's similar), it looks like compiling in DSL may well be possible, but you'll need to compile some dependencies first.

Most of the dependencies that are not optional will need to be compiled by you because the correct versions are not included with DSL, and they are not in any extensions in the "MyDSL" repository.

gcc 4: no version this late is available pre-compiled for DSL
cmake 2.4: isn't in the MyDSL repository
fmodex 4.26.36: isn't in the MyDSL repository
SDL 2.0.3:   no version this late is available pre-compiled for DSL

Some of these dependencies will probably have dependencies of their own that must then be compiled first if they're not already in DSL or the MyDSL repository at the correct version. It's possible that some dependencies will not be able to compile with the old Linux kernel that DSL uses (version 2.4.31).

Many of these dependencies for dependencies will be covered by packages in the MyDSL repository, "compile-3.3.5.uci" will likely contain many, even though the version of gcc that is included in it is too old to be used to compile Zdoom. This page shows the base packages already included in DSL (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/packages.html). - Actually, I'm not sure what version of DSL the X-Box port was based on, so that page may not be 100% accurate if you're running X-DSL.

If you find that a dependency can't be installed in DSL due to the Kernel problem, you could try older versions of Zdoom that might be more compatible with the old software base available for DSL.

Finally, in case you don't know, there is the "prboom" version of the Doom engine available for DSL in the MyDSL respository with the file name "doom.dsl". Make sure you get the one for DSL, not DSL-N.

By the way, thanks for reminding me about the Xbox version of DSL, I'll have to try modding the broken Xbox I've got one of these years...

I've loaded plenty of .dsl files offline, so it certinly works in most cases.

I gather you're running a frugal install from your HDD. If you are running "live" from a CD, then it really should work so perhaps your .dsl is corrupt.

Can you try another .dsl as a test?

If none are working, perhaps something is wrong with your installation (assuming you are not running DSL from a CD).

Oh, also. Do you know that the package you're trying to load won't show any icons etc. once it's loaded. You need to check it's loaded by trying the "dpkg" or "apt-get" commands.

Argh, archive.org wrecks havoc on my poor Pentium I since they started to force https. Anyway, I finally found where the manual was hiding (https://web.archive.org/web/20011212090148/http://www.wxftp.seul.org/help/axyftp.html).

Not a PDF, but I'm sure you'll cope. It actually seems fairly comprehensive.
