NAME
mime.convs - mime type conversion file for cups DESCRIPTION
The mime.convs file defines the filters that are available for converting files from one format to another. The standard filters support text, PDF, PostScript, HP-GL/2, and many types of image files. Additional filters can be added to the mime.convs file or (preferably) to other files in the CUPS configuration directory. Each line in the mime.convs file is a comment, blank, or filter line. Comment lines start with the # character. Filter lines specify the source and destination MIME types along with a relative cost associated with the filter and the filter to run: super/type super/type cost filter application/postscript application/vnd.cups-raster 50 pstoraster SEE ALSO

NAME
cupsfilter - convert a file to another format using cups filters SYNOPSIS
cupsfilter [ --list-filters ] [ -D ] [ -U user ] [ -c config-file ] [ -d printer ] [ -e ] [ -i mime/type ] [ -j job-id[,N] ] [ -m mime/type ] [ -n copies ] [ -o name=value ] [ -p filename.ppd ] [ -t title ] [ -u ] filename DESCRIPTION
cupsfilter is a front-end to the CUPS filter subsystem which allows you to convert a file to a specific format, just as if you had printed the file through CUPS. By default, cupsfilter generates a PDF file. The converted file is sent to the standard output. OPTIONS
--list-filters Do not actually run the filters, just print the filters used to stdout. -D Delete the input file after conversion. -U user Specifies the username passed to the filters. The default is the name of the current user. -c config-file Uses the named cups-files.conf configuration file. -d printer Uses information from the named printer. -e Use every filter from the PPD file. -i mime/type Specifies the source file type. The default file type is guessed using the filename and contents of the file. -j job-id[,N] Converts document N from the specified job. If N is omitted, document 1 is converted. -m mime/type Specifies the destination file type. The default file type is application/pdf. Use printer/foo to convert to the printer format defined by the filters in the PPD file. -n copies Specifies the number of copies to generate. -o name=value Specifies options to pass to the CUPS filters. -p filename.ppd Specifies the PPD file to use. -t title Specifies the document title. -u Delete the PPD file after conversion. EXIT STATUS
cupsfilter returns a non-zero exit status on any error. ENVIRONMENT
All of the standard cups(1) environment variables affect the operation of cupsfilter. FILES
/etc/cups/cups-files.conf /etc/cups/*.convs /etc/cups/*.types /usr/share/cups/mime/*.convs /usr/share/cups/mime/*.types NOTES
Unlike when printing, filters run using the cupsfilter command use the current user and security session. This may result in different out- put or unexpected behavior. EXAMPLE
The following command will generate a PDF preview of job 42 for a printer named "myprinter" and save it to a file named "preview.pdf": cupsfilter -m application/pdf -d myprinter -j 42 >preview.pdf SEE ALSO
