Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3607
Windows postscript & ghostscript
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
Postscript data created by Windows drivers contain
%Trailer info not intended to go to the printer.
Ghostscript tries to send this to stdout but the use of the
-sOutputFile=- option combines it and causes an extra page
to follow every job. This wastes paper and is annoying.
The following construct in
corrects this problem:
eval "$mpage_cmd | gs -q -sDEVICE=$GSDEVICE \
-sOutputFile=\|'cat 1>&3' \
- 3>&1 1>&2 "
what does the %Trailer info look like (I'm trying to sync
this with another report of extra garbage coming from a Windows
yup, looks like something I've seen before with the
Adobe postscript driver. Fix applied in rhs-printfilters-1.55-1,
in the next Raw Hide release.
