Lexmark MS312dn by Axel Berger[_2_]
The Lexmark laser printer supposedly uses standard postscript. I have got the Lexmark multi-driver package which asks me to choose one or several printers, with the MS312 naturally not among them. Do I have a chance to get it running by choosing any of the older ones? If so, which? It is being...

Does .mp4 - or any other video format - have a text field (comment, not subtitle)? If so, what can edit it? by J. P. Gilliver (John)[_2_]
