NAME


foo2slx-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a SLX printer stream

SYNOPSIS


foo2slx-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

DESCRIPTION


foo2slx-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2slx printer driver.
This script reads a Postscript ps-file or standard input and converts it to Software
Imaging K.K. SLX printer format for driving the Lexmark C500 network color laser printer
and other SLX-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.

-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 foo2slx 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. foo2slx-wrapper
always runs Ghostscript with the ideal page dimensions, 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

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 example, 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 foo2slx 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:

foo2slx-wrapper testpage.ps > testpage.zm
slxdecode < testpage.zm
lpr -P raw testpage.zm

Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

foo2slx-wrapper -c testpage.ps > testpage.zc
