I just got Ghostscript working for my hp500c printer, and have run into
trouble printing photographs that I have scanned. They are not very large,
about 60K each, but when I print them using xv, xv cats the temporary
postscript file to lpr, and lpr prints a short error message on paper and
this on screen:

        lpr:  : copy file is too large

The only potentially meaningful part of the printed error is:

        Last OS error: 19


Is there some way I can allow larger files to be processed by lpr?
