I have a Barcode printer.
It's defined as a remote printer on the system.
The /etc/lp/interface/<printer> file is printing has a part that enables Hebrew printing.
For some reason the Printer is printing in a very small font.
I'll attach the interface file:
This is the file.
Can anyone tell me how to increase the font size?
The printer is a regular printer , and attached to the network with a HP jet direct card to the network.
It has a network IP address and it is configured correctly on the machine as a remote printer. The user is printing to it- but the font is to small...
Ok.... I know what I am about to tell you might seem weird... but.. hear me out...
I had a problem once.. where I had a laser printer connected to my network via a Jet Direct card that was Internal to the printer. In other words... my ethernet cable was plugged directly into an internal JetDirect card.
It seems that on occasions.. passing printer commands through the interface script would have no effect on the printer. The font wouldn't change, nor would the paper trays switch..etc..
I contacted HP and I was told by HP.. that I needed to pass those commands via the parallel port. I purchased an external print server and located it near my printer. Configured my print server and installed the parallel cable between my print server and my printers parallel port.. It worked like a charm.
I could NEVER get HP to tell me why this would only work this way. I can't say that it will solve your problem, but you might want to give it a shot.

I want to have a script that will download a soft font to a printer so that
any one may run it when the printer is turned off then on.
What would be the easiest way to do that? Linux Redhat.

We were printing to a serial laser printer with all the HP codes to generate a form (i.e. lines, boxes, etc.) Thus the file is filled w/ control codes. We are switching to an IP printer and we can no longer print directly to the device (i.e. cp text /dev/tty11). It looks like we have to use the lp... (2 Replies)
