DESCRIPTION

This shell script is intended to be uses as an LP interface script on Solaris 2.6 and later systems. It allows print queues to be configured under LP using Ghostscript to render for the printer.

Configuration under lpsched is performed via the lpadmin(1M) command.


        # lpadmin -p printer -v /dev/... -I"postscript,pdf" -Tunknown \
                -i /usr/sfw/share/ghostscript/interfaces/GSinterface \
                -o GS_DEVICE=(gs-device-type) \
                [-o OutputFile=(file/device)] [-o PAPERSIZE=(size)] \
                [-o RESOLUTION=XxY] [-o banner-type=(ascii|postscript)] \
                [-o GS_OPTIONS="-sIjsServer=... -sIjsParams=..."]



Valid values for the GS_DEVICE setting can be obtained from Ghostscript by running: "gs -h". This will dump a variety of information about Ghostscript’s usage and compile time configuration. The "Available devices:" section lists the formats that Ghostscript will render to. You will need to match one of these formats to the format that your printer takes as input.

EXAMPLES

To configure a Canon Bublejet 800c (NeWSprinter CL+) printer connected to an ECP parallel port:


        # lpadmin -p printer -v /dev/ecpp0 -I"postscript,pdf" -Tunknown \                 -i /usr/sfw/share/ghostscript/interfaces/GSinterface \                 -o GS_DEVICE=bjc800         # accept printer         # enable printer

To configure an HP DeskJet 990 printer connected via a USB interface using IJS support:


        # lpadmin -p printer -v /dev/usb/lp1 -I"postscript,pdf" -Tunknown \                 -i /usr/sfw/share/ghostscript/interfaces/GSinterface \                 -o GS_DEVICE=ijs \                 -o GS_OPTIONS="-sIjsServer=hpijs -sDeviceManufacturer=HEWLETT-PACKARD -sDeviceModel=’DESKJET 990’ -DIjsUseOutputFD"         # accept printer         # enable printer
