XPR for colour laserjet?

Post by John G.Burn » Sun, 29 Mar 1998 04:00:00

I'm looking for a way of printing colour X pixmaps to our LaserJet 5m
with Postscript. We used to use xpr for our mono lasers but it won't do
colour postscript :-(

Is their a newer version fo xpr? I'm on 10.20 right now.

Any other utility for printing pixmaps from the command line would also
suffice. The images are being generated by xwd. I can print them using
Xv but it would be nicer for the users to automate the task. TIA.

Quote:> The images are being generated by xwd.

  I am by no means an expert on this, but as far as I know, the general
advice is not to use xpr, because, as you found, it has very limited
device support, but instead use xwd2sb(1), and feed the output to
pcltrans(1G), which has much more elaborate device support.


1. color laserjet 4500 color page count from HP-UX

Does anyone know how to get _color_ page count of a 4500 Color LaserJet
from within HP-UX?

my PJL Technical Reference predates color laserjets and gives no
clue about color pages.
I can get the count by printing test page, but that doesn't help
much because I need to get it after each job - I'm upgrading
a print accounting script to distinguish color pages.
I'd think there must be a PJL command for the purpose, but what
it might be I can't figure out.

If someone could even confirm there's an updated PJL Tech Ref
that contains the info I'd be happy enough to order one
(HP part # would be very much appreciated).

Thanks in advance,
