With that said, once it starts I will have no access to any GUI applications since I never even new X existed until a few years later.
Did you actually install without the x-sets?

For OpenBSD it is recommended to install X, which I did. I set this up after a friend gave me that system a while ago. She was throwing it out, so I grabbed it from her.

But I will not start xdm, without xdm X is really unusable under OpenBSD.

Good idea, but wait for it, my only printer is a dot matrix :lol:

But will remember that should I ever get a real printer

Install imagemagick and ghostscript. Then:

Code: Select all

conver stripcomic.png -colors 2 -resize 320x240 cave.ps
Then send that PS file to the printer with either LPR or CUPS.
