You have to set the value of "printer-name"
That does not necessarily help.
But does not necessarily fail, either.  No need to discourage a fellow
Emacs users before they even tried.

I did not try to discourage. As you know there is a very simple
solution: Use the web browser for printing. For details see the page
on EmacsWiki I pointed to.



It's certainly much easier to get something out of Emacs and down in black and white (color too) using printing through the browser rather than through ghost-script. Virtually every w32 user has a browser but very many don't have ghost-script installed. I think that I once had the latter method working since I have lines similar to rustom's commented out in my .emacs. To get printing through Firefox all I had to do was download:

hfyview.el
htmlfontify.el

These are in my emacs/lisp directory but they could probably go in emacs/emacs-lisp instead, where the other piece of the puzzle, easymenu.el resides.

Then add to .emacs:

(require 'hfyview)

After restarting (or maybe just rereading .emacs) a new item appears in the File menu:

Quick Printing (Using Web Browser)
