Printing a Large document on multiple pages
 
Hi fellow peoples,

Does any body have an idea how to print a 62.4 x 61 in PDF document on multiple A3 pages (its a grid of circles, used to do the fish-eye lens calibration), so I can then just sticky tape them together to make the 62.4 x 61 in document.

I've tried: lpr, gtklp, evince, xpdf, acroread, poster but with no luck. Maybe I'm missing some argument/option.

Does any body have an idea how to print a damn large document 1:1 on multiple pages under Linux (or Windows if it comes to it).

Thx.

Edit: D'oh! Should've read closer. I see you've already tried my suggestion.

Edit again: I've just thought of another possibility. Install imagemagick if you don't have it already, then run the pdf through it to convert it to an image file. Something like:
Code:

convert largeposter.pdf largeposter.png
Then you can use gimp or something to hack it up into A3 sized pieces that you can print separately.

sounds very complicated ... if windows can make it, linux should make it too without thousand convertions, isnt it author of the thread ?

Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but for the benefit of anyone else who stumbled here from Google: we eventually solved the problem with http://posterazor.sourceforge.net/

HTH!
