   My understanding is that the Hp755CM  is shipped ready to print postscript,
 as opposed to the 750c, which is not. You should be able to send your file
 output from directly to the plotter.  The only file you would need
 is the ps.devices text file in $GISBASE/etc/paint/ps.devices, which is used
 by  A sample is included below:

>cat ps36x48.300
level: 2
page width: 36
page height: 48
top margin: 0.50
bottom margin: 0.50
left margin: 0.50
right margin: 0.50
resolution: 300
