HPDJ 1600CM: Change paper size & print quality
Posted on 1997-04-11
I have access to a HP DeskJet 1600CM printer in our local Unix network.
The problem is the following:
The default paper size is "Letter" and the default print qualitiy is "normal".
1.) I want to change the paper size to "A4" (very important)
2.) Print quality could be better than "normal" (no so important, but would be nice..)
Our system administrator is not willing or able to modify the
configuration so that a "normal" user can print out things on DIN A4 paper.
How can I (as a "normal" user without root privileges) change
the paper size to A4? Which printer command (escape sequence) is used to do this?
How do I submit this command to the printer?
If you know it, please tell me the commands/things I have to
do (unfortunately I don't have any manual for the printer).
