Description Akira TAGOH 2004-04-09 14:22:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
changing the resolution doesn't work for the printer driver which is
included in ghostscript. and such drivers can changes the resolution
against -r option. so the resolution which is configured on s-c-p
should be given to gs too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure the printer like NEC MultiWriter
2.print out something
3.change the resolution and print out again.

Actual Results:  no changes the resolution.

Expected Results:  should changes the resolution properly

Additional info:

to confirm this without the MultiWriter printer, you can see below
what happens.

$ gs -dBATCH -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=npdl -sOutputFile=foo.out
$ gs -r600 -dBATCH -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=npdl
-sOutputFile=bar.out /usr/share/printconf/tests/test-sjis.ps
$ ls -l *out
-rw-rw-r--  1 tagoh tagoh 193563 Apr  9 23:25 bar.out
-rw-rw-r--  1 tagoh tagoh  47364 Apr  9 23:25 foo.out

and according to gdevnpdl.c, default resolution is 240.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2004-04-14 07:50:59 UTC
Shouldn't the driver have its resolution set from the PostScript
directive that gets put in its input stream?

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-14 08:17:32 UTC
not sure, but it seems not to works for all of the drivers. perhaps -r
option may not works for all of the drivers as well?
BTW gs doesn't have all of the drivers, do it?

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 15:33:32 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
