Please.. point me in the right direction


Hi folks,

Although I have been using Linux for some time (about a year I think) I still consider myself new at it - I have so much to learn!!!!!!

Anyway - here is my issue - I tried to resolve it, but I can't even get started.

I have:
Suse 9.0 (relativley up to date)
Mozilla 1.6
Xerox Docuprint N17 laser printer.

I am trying to print a website. There are some Japanese characters on it. The Japanese characters get printed as squares - however the bulk of the page which is in english prints just fine. It shows up good in the browser, I just can't print them.

Any suggestions??? Cups issue?? I figured since they show up ok on the screen, my system can handle them.. please help

thanks a lot in advance - tw

convert to other format?

Can you save the page and convert it to some other format using the convert command?

Something like

convert page.html page.ps

Then you can try opening the new file in the GIMP, see if it looks ok, and see if you can print from the GIMP.

Just an idea.....

ehawk,

great idea and I appreciate you throwing a suggestion out.... but no luck. The squares have now become upper ascii characters - which is closer, but ........


I tried the convert command - said 'image file not recognized' so I just opened it up in a window and used the print command and saved it as a file. I tried both .ps and pdf.... the looked exactly the same.. I tried all the different print drivers:
cups
genaric
generic UNIX LPD print system
and 2 others


Any other tips or ideas?????? thanks everyone
