CUPS ghostscript pre-filtering improper default on laserjet 1300
Last modified: 2008-02-06 11:12:33 EST
Description of problem:
Setting up a new Laserjet 1300 defaults to having "GhostScript pre-filtering" in
the Driver Options panel in printconf set to "No pre-filtering." This means
that applications which send a PostScript level which is too high for the
printer lose. It would be a fine thing if the printer could be queried for its
postscript support level at config (or even run-time), and the pre-filtering set
appropriately. FWIW, Gecko-based web-browsers have this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's a problem for Gecko-based browsers since we started using Xft for
Postscript printing, which was after the Firefox 1.0 / Mozilla 1.7
