I don't think the "a5 effect" is printer specific. SuSE uses the
apsfilter package to manage printers - apsfilter is a collection
of scripts etc. which try to provide sensible printer behaviour
automatically for a variety of common input files.
In the case of text files, the text is fed through a2ps to produce
postscript and this is then fed through ghostscript to provide
a printer-specific output format.
The behaviour of apsfilter and a2ps can be altered via the file :

"FEATURE=" line in this file and change it to read :
There is a documented example apsfilterrc file in :
There is also an stcolor related option described in this file
