I did some serching on "condensed" and "condensed print" "control codes" and did not see anything so here's my problem
I have a customer that would like all print jobs that go to a specific HP-laser printer to be condensed. I've done this many times in unix (SCO IBM etc...) by editing the printer strings directly. I would set up two printers that go to the same device, but one of the printers would have the control codes for condensed print in their init strings. I don't see how to do that in RHES. FRom what I've read linux creates these files on the fly so you really cant edit any type of configuration file.
I have been able to affect print size with the "-o cpi=18" option in the LP command. The print is reduced but it does not look right, almost like its off center.
If someone could give me a link to read, documentation, or some quick pointers I would be very grateful. I've been doing unix since ATT and XeniX and right about now I'm feeling very dumb.
I only have remote access via putty so i do not have access to the GUI client.
I think they are going to have to send me a distro copy if they want me to start supporting this.
thanks in advance for any help.
