NAME
foo2oak-wrapper - Convert Postscript into an OAKT printer stream SYNOPSIS
foo2oak-wrapper [options] [ps-file] DESCRIPTION
foo2oak-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2oak printer driver. This script reads a Postscript ps-file or stan- dard input and converts it to Oak Technology OAKT printer format for driving the HP Color LaserJet 1500 laser printer, Kyocera KM-1636/KM-2035 copiers, and other OAKT-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 HP CLJ 1500 KM-1635 -z0 -z1 ------------------------------------- autoselect 0 0 plain 1 1 preprinted 2 2 letterhead 3 3 transparency 4 4 prepunched 5 5 labels 6 6 bond 7 7 recycled 8 8 color 9 9 cardstock 10 10 envelope 11 11 light 13 na tough 14 na vellum na 15 rough na 16 thick na 19 highqual na 20 -p paper Paper size code to send to printer [1]. +-----------------+-----------------+ | 1 letter | 3 ledger | | 5 legal | 6 statement | | 7 executive | 8 A3 | | 9 A4 | 11 A5 | | 12 B4 | 13 B5jis | | 14 folio | 19 env9 | | 20 env10 | 27 envDL | | 28 envC5 | 30 envC4 | | 37 envMonarch | 257 A6 | |258 B6 | 259 B5iso | |260 env6 | | +-----------------+-----------------+ -n copies Number of copies [1]. -r xresxyres Set device resolution in pixels/inch [600x600]. -s source Source (Input Slot) code to send to printer [7]. | | |1 tray1 | 2 tray2 |4 manual | 7 auto -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 foo2oak 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 OAKT stream. foo2oak-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 -z model Model is 0 for the HP Color LaserJet 1500, and 1 for the Kyocera KM-1635/KM-2035 copiers. The default is 0. 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. (WORK IN PROGRESS). -G gamma-file.ps Prepend gamma-file.ps 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 foo2oak 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 OAKT stream from a Postscript document, examine it, and then print it using a RAW print queue: foo2oak-wrapper testpage.ps > testpage.oak oakdecode < testpage.oak lpr -P raw testpage.oak Create a color OAKT stream from a Postscript document: foo2oak-wrapper -c testpage.ps > testpage.oak FILES
