Printing PDF from AIX 7
Posted on 2012-08-24
I am trying to print PDF files from an AIX 7 server.
I have added a NT shared printer which is on Windows 2003, I have connected the AIX 7 print queue to the windows 2003 shared HP printer fine, but it only prints gibberish...
I can do PDF2PS and print, but this is a manual process, I need an automated process which will print the PDF's fine from AIX 7. Preferably using the NT shared printer.
When I print directly from the 2003 server, its prints fine. Only when the print is initiated from AIX 7 it prints gibberish. I do see the print job go through the windows spool service.
Any advice on how I can get this to work?
I have read some vague information about creation of a 'conversion queue' so windows will do the post processing.. I am unsure how to set this up or if it will work at all... Any info about this may help.
