foo2zjs-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream


foo2zjs-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


foo2zjs-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2zjs printer driver.
This script reads a Postscript ps-file or standard input and converts it to Zenographics
ZjStream printer format for driving the Minolta/QMS 2300 DL network color laser printer
and other Zenographics-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.

Printer Tweaking Options
These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2zjs 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. foo2zjs-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

-P Do not send START_PLANE codes on monochrome output. May be needed by some
monochrome-only printers, such as the HP LaserJet 1000.

-X padlen
Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes.
Padding 16 bytes of zeroes is needed for older ZjStream printers, such as the
Minolta 2200DL and HP LaserJet 1000, and seems harmless to newer ones, such as the
Minolta 2300DL. So the default should be good for all cases.

-z model
Model. Default is 0.

0 KM 2300DL / HP 1000 / HP 1005
1 HP 1018 / HP 1020 / HP 1022
2 HP Pro P1102 / P1566 / P1606dn
3 HP Pro CP1025

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 foo2zjs 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].


Create a monochrome ZjStream from a Postscript document, examine it, and then print it
using a RAW print queue:

foo2zjs-wrapper testpage.ps > testpage.zm
zjsdecode < testpage.zm
lpr -P raw testpage.zm

Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

foo2zjs-wrapper -c testpage.ps > testpage.zc
