You need ghostscript for this baby to work. Any thoughts on this command? Does it work on your machine? Can you do the same thing with only 14 characters? You must be signed in to comment. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too.

Next post Previous post. This is not a theoretical concern; it happened to me last year. The PDFs I bought today caused even more trouble. The method depends on a clever hack I learned from this Linux Forums discussion. I downloaded and expanded the source code into a ghostscript With this, I had a fully-functioning Ghostscript system in my home directory that was ready for the Linux Forums hack.
When a file is sent to a printer, the printer driver first creates a spool file in the native language of the printer, then sends it along to the printer. After the file is printed, the spool file is deleted. Getting that spool file is the key to creating an unencumbered PDF. It just so happens that my default printer is a PostScript printer, so the spool file is PostScript, a close cousin of PDF and the format Ghostscript was written to handle.
Instead, it throws up this piece of shit. That directory is for root access only. But I can get at it from the Terminal:. After I give my administrative password, the second command lists all the files in the cups subdirectory in reverse chronological order. The PostScript spool file will be the big file near the top of the list, and will have a name like d The command.
I delete the print job from the queue and unPause the printer. I am, admittedly, in a very good position because my default printer is PostScript. That would force Reader to create the PostScript spool file I need for the last step. I now have a new file called d Apart from one or two changes in the directories, this approach should work as well for a Linux computer as it does for a Mac.

For other information, see the Ghostscript overview. You may also be interested in how to build Ghostscript and install it , as well as the description of the driver interface. Documentation for some older, superceded devices has been moved to another document. In general such devices are deprecated and will be removed in future versions of Ghostscript. In general all older printer drivers can be replaced by the ijs interface and one of the available 3rd party raster driver collections. We recommend moving to the ijs device for all such printing. Several different important kinds of measures appear throughout this document: inches, centimeters and millimeters, points, and bits per pixel.
