Description jgaither 1998-12-20 21:52:08 EST
I get this message when I have -dBitsPerPixel on the command

Unexpected interpreter error -15.
Error object: .putdeviceprops

example call:
cat /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/testpage.ps | gs
-sDEVICE=cdj500 -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r300x300 -dNOPAUSE
-dSAFER -dBitsPerPixel=1 -sOutp

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1998-12-21 10:36:59 EST
You're using one of the HP Deskjet drivers, and you're
setting bpp=1, correct?  The driver is broken in this respect.

Try bpp=8 (that's still monochrome), or using a different
driver if that's the case.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1998-12-29 11:19:59 EST
rhs-printfilters 1.46-4 no longer allows 1bpp for cdj-based drivers.
This should fix the problem.
