foo2hp2600-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream SYNOPSIS
foo2hp2600-wrapper [options] [ps-file] DESCRIPTION
foo2hp2600-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2hp printer driver. This script reads a Postscript ps-file or stan- dard input and converts it to Zenographics ZjStream printer format for driving the Hewlett-Packard 2600n color laser printer and other Zenographics-based printers. This script can be used in a standalone fashion, but is intended to be called from a printer spooler system which uses the Foomatic printer database. COMMAND LINE OPTIONS
Normal Options These are the options used to select the parameters of a print job that are usually controlled on a per job basis. -b bits Number of bits per plane. 1 or 2. [1]. -c Print in color (else monochrome). -d duplex Duplex code to send to printer [1]. | | | |1 off | 2 long edge | 3 short edge -m media Media code to send to printer [1]. -------------------------- Media HPLJ 2600n -------------------------- plain 1 preprinted 514 letterhead 513 transparency 2 prepunched 515 labels 265 bond 260 recycled 516 color 512 tough 276 envelope 267 light 258 heavy 262 cardstock 261 lightglossy 268 glossy 269 heavyglossy 270 cover 277 photo 278 -p paper Paper size code to send to printer [1]. +-----------------+-------------+ | 1 letter | 9 A4 | | 5 legal | 11 A5 | | 7 executive | 13 B5jis | |20 env #10 | 27 env DL | |28 env C5 | 34 env B5 | |37 env Monarch | | +-----------------+-------------+ -n copies Number of copies [1]. -r xresxyres Set device resolution in pixels/inch [1200x600]. -s source Source (Input Slot) code to send to printer [7]. | | |1 tray 2 | 4 manual/tray 1 |2 tray 3 | 7 auto -t Draft mode. Every other pixel is white. -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -8 -9 -10 -12 -14 -15 -16 -18 Print in N-up. Requires the psutils package. -o orient Orientation used for N-up. Portrait -op (normal) Landscape -ol (rotated 90 degrees anticlockwise) Seascape -os (rotated 90 degrees clockwise) Printer Tweaking Options These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2hp for a particular printer. -u xoffxyoff Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in pixels [varies with paper size]. The defaults should work on the 2200DL and 2300DL, and have not been tested on any other printers. -l xoffxyoff Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in pixels [varies with paper size]. The defaults should work on the 2200DL and 2300DL, and have not been tested on any other printers. -L mask Send the logical clipping values from -u/-l in the ZjStream. foo2hp2600-wrapper always runs Ghostscript with the ideal page dimen- sions, so that the scale of the image is correct, regardless whether or not the printer has unprintable regions. This option is used to move the position of the clipped image back to where it belongs on the page. The default is to send the amount which was clipped by -u and -l, and should be good in most cases. 0 don't send any logical clipping amounts 1 only send Y clipping amount 2 only send X clipping amount 3 send both X and Y clipping amounts -O parm=val Alignment of CMYK. parm is c, m, y, or k. val is in rows. Multiple options are allowed. The default is "-Oc=0 -Om=0 -Oy=0 -Ok=0". -P Do not send START_PLANE codes on monochrome output. May be needed by some monochrome-only printers, such as the HP LaserJet 1000. -X padlen Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes. Padding 16 bytes of zeroes is needed for older ZjStream printers, such as the Minolta 2200DL and HP LaserJet 1000, and seems harmless to newer ones, such as the Minolta 2300DL. So the default should be good for all cases. -z model Model: Model: 0=HP CLJ 1600/2600n; 1=HP CLJ CP1215 Color Tweaking Options These are the options used to control the quality of color output. Color correction is currently a WORK IN PROGRESS. -g gsopts Additional options to pass to Ghostscript, such as -g"-dDITHERPPI=nnn", etc. This option may appear more than once. -G profile.icm Convert profile.icm to a Postscript color rendering dictionary (CRD) using foo2zjs-icc2ps and adjust the printer colors by using the Postscript setcolorrendering operator. If profile.icm is none.icm, then prepare for ordering a ICM custom printer profile (i.e. from -G Prepend to the Postscript input to perform color correction using the setcolortransfer Postscript operator. For exam- ple, the file might contain: {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} setcolortransfer -I intent Select profile intent from the ICM file. 0=Perceptual, 1=Colorimetric, 2=Saturation, 3=Absolute. Default is 0 (perceptual). Debugging Options These options are used for debugging foo2hp and its wrapper. -S plane Output just a single color plane from a color print and print it on the black plane. The default is to output all color planes. 1 Cyan 2 Magenta 3 Yellow 4 Black -D level Set Debug level [0]. EXAMPLES
Create a monochrome ZjStream from a Postscript document, examine it, and then print it using a RAW print queue: foo2hp2600-wrapper > zjsdecode < lpr -P raw Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document: foo2hp2600-wrapper -c > testpage.zc FILES
