I'm looking for some way to print postscript files to non-ps printers.
Currently I have one virtual printer defined in each HP-UX based
workstation's spooler - I call it 'ps'. This is actually remote printer
to another printer 'pista', and in /usr/spool/lp/interfaces/ps I have
replaced the call to rlp with the following line:
echo "quit" | /usr/local/bin/gs -sDEVICE=ljet3 -sPAPERSIZE=a4 \
"-sOutputFile=|(lp -or -dpista -onb -p5)" $1
Now, the problem is that I am not sattisfied with the output of print
jobs. This might be because I use drivers for LaserJet3 in Ghostscript,
and my printer is 4P (at least I explain it to myself this way).
Next thing I tried was putting '...-sDEVICE=ljet4' but then gs
complains. Since I don't know much about ghostscript (and even less
about Postscript), could someone point me to right direction?
Oh, I forgot to mention: systems involved are various flavours of HP-UX
from 9.05 up, i.e. 9.05, 10.10 & 10.20, and it HAS to be this way.
Furthermore, what today is 10.20, tomorrow can be 9.05 and vice versa.
Therefore, I can't rely on SharedPrint (am I wrong?) - I rather need
what I call universal approach, which eventually I could fbackup or
tar on tape, and restore later.
I need this in order to print from Netscape, Acroread, LaserROM,...
Any suggestions are welcome.
