It' s very important to know at least if you are printing in polling
or using interrupt. If you are printing in polling the only thing that
can slowdown a bit the printing (against an interrupt driven one) is the


tunelp /dev/lp0 -t 0

but I don' t think this can fix your problems.

You should also provide us your lp/parport log messages.
