I am using a HP mopier 5 si with a sun Solaris. I want to use the -o options but i only have the -o tray1 and -o tray2 and -o bin1 -o bin2 but i need the bin 4 and 5. I think i have to adjust the script net_lj5x but i am not sure and i dont know how to do it. I have the necessary escape codes for the printer. What i want is to sent multiple copies from different trays to the stacker and i think it has to be done with a script which says something like this:

lp -dmopier -otray1 -obin1
lp -dmopier -otray2 -obin1

Who knows?

kind regards,

Gert-Jan

The interface script that actually gets used (a copy of net_lj5x) will be
/var/spool/lp/admins/lp/interfaces/model.orig/mopier; Looking at a HP Laserjet
5Si on my Solaris system, the interface script will cope with bin4 etc -
it sends a PJL command SET OUTBIN = OPTIONALOUTBIN4 to the printer (which will
ignore the command if it doesn't have a bin4)

So you don't need to hack the interface and your script would be like :
lp -dmopier -otray1 -obin4 -n number_of_copies front_cover_page
lp -dmopier -otray2 -obin4 -n number_of_copies other_pages
lp -dmopier -otray1 -obin4 -n number_of_copies back_cover_page

Hope this helps, Tim
