I have an Epson Stylus 440, and I would like to print to it with
ghostscript. I've compiled gs5.50 with support for stcolor and
I can print with the command:
gs -sDEVICE=stcolor -sOutputFile=/dev/lp1 -r360x360 -dNOPAUSE -dSAFER test.ps -c quit
However, the print quality is quite poor. Solid color images print
looking like they were done on a dot matrix printer; you can see a
grid of dots.
I get the same using:
I noticed that stcany.upp uses EscP2 as the language, while Epson
states that this model uses "Epson ESC/P Raster," not "ESC/P 2" as
most other Stylus models do. Hence, I edited stcany.upp to say:
but that results in a ghostscript error:
Error: /undefined in --.outputpage--
Interestingly, if I print with just
gs -sDEVICE=stcolor -sOutputFile=/dev/lp1
then it looks great, except for circles, which are printed as lemon
shapes instead! Maybe it is trying to tell me something. :)
Actually, I think that there is some mixup in the resolution causing
gs to position things wrong (hence, the top of the circle is shifted
left, and the bottom is shifted right, forming a lemon shape).
Does anyone have any suggestions for getting it to print nice looking
images with correctly-shaped circles?
