Print a PDF file using CUPS (Red Hat Linux)
I have network printers setup under Red Hat Enterprise 3. They are presently configured using "raw device" for the printer driver. Most of the printers are HP lasers.(HP5 & HP4000 series, if that matters)
They are setup as raw devices because we send HP <esc> sequences through to control fonts and layout. (Older legacy software) I would like to be able to configure a network printer to accept a PDF file and print it, just by sending the file to the printer. (i.e. lp -d<printer_name> testfile.pdf) Is this possible and if so what is involved to configure CUPS to allow the process? Any help would be appreciated.
