I have setup a linux printer (HP OfficeJet Pro 8600) and it prints fine from OpenOffice.
However, I want to setup a script to print a PDF once every week to keep the ink from drying up. I want to set a cron job to do
lpr -P "HP_OfficeJet_8600" /my_path/my_pdf.pdf
Running this command from the shell does not work. I get about 10 pages of random characters. I've tried to use various PFD files, GIF files, JPEG, but they all seem to be doing the same thing.
The PDF I've tried print fine from xPDF.
Anybody have ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
