Unix print driver

I know this is the wrong forum but I am in a bit of a rush, and this will take days in the other forums.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good place to download unix drivers for printers? I need one for a panasonic KXP2023.

  1. Hmm. 360DPI dot-matrix printer, I see.

    Well, it's <A HREF="http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Panasonic-KX-P2023" target="_new">supported in Linux</A>, for what that's worth. I'm not sure how well other Unices support it though, especially as each Unix tends to have its own special proprietary printer setup. The only thing really "standardized" about printing in Unix is the input format for the print spooler (PostScript) and the commands used to submit print jobs to the spooler. It should be theoretically possible to replace the proprietary print subsystem in some Unix variant with <A HREF="http://www.cups.org" target="_new">CUPS</A>+<A HREF="http://www.cups.org/ghostscript.php" target="_new">ESP GhostScript</A>+<A HREF="http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/" target="_new">Gimp-Print</A>, but that's not something I've ever done.
