RHEL5 landscape printing problem


I have a RedHat 5.3 x86_64 server on which I try to print landscape.
The problem I have is that the job wraps lines after on the 109th character. No matter what cpi or lpi options values I choose.

Has anyone encountered this issue? How have you sorted it out?.

I need to print at leaset 135 characters per line. Is there way to accomplish this?

I have hpjis, hplip etc installed on the sever

the command used to print is
lp -o landscape -o sides=two-sided-long-edge -o media=a4 -o lpi=6 -o cpi=20 -o width=200 -o wrap=false -d <printer name> <file name>

The solution is to bypass paps

change the following in the /etc/cups/mime.convs file
#text/plain application/postscript 33 texttopaps
#text/html application/postscript 33 texttopaps
text/plain application/postscript 33 texttops
text/html application/postscript 33 texttops

Question We need to use textopaps to support utf-8. is there another solution?

Are there other solutions? We need to support utf-8 and I believe that we need to use texttopaps not texttops to do that. Is there a fix for this bug?


printing, rhel5
