Use the a2ps options "-f", or the options "-1"
Thanks, I'll try that next time.
Incidentally, I found the problem with lpr in my case
was that the file I was printing used \r\n for end-of-line
(I guess it passed through a Windows system at some point)
and lpr printed this with double-spacing.
Dos2unix solved that problem.
