NAME

foo2lava-wrapper – Convert Postscript into a LAVAFLOW or OPL printer
stream

SYNOPSIS

foo2lava-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

DESCRIPTION

foo2lava-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the
foo2lava printer driver. This script reads a Postscript ps-file or
standard input and converts it to Zenographics LAVAFLOW printer format
for driving the Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W color laser printer, the
Konica Minolta magicolor 1680MF/1690MF AIO printer, the Konica Minolta
magicolor 2480/2490 MF AIO printer, the Konica Minolta magicolor 2530
DL network color laser printer, and other Zenographics-based LAVAFLOW
printers.

This script can be used in a standalone fashion, but is intended to be
called from a printer spooler system which uses the Foomatic printer
database.

Printer Tweaking Options
These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2lava for a
particular printer.

-u xoffxyoff
Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the
upper left corner, in pixels [varies with paper size]. The
defaults should work on the 2200DL and 2300DL, and have not been
tested on any other printers.

-l xoffxyoff
Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower
right corner, in pixels [varies with paper size]. The defaults
should work on the 2200DL and 2300DL, and have not been tested
on any other printers.

-L mask
Send the logical clipping values from -u/-l in the LAVAFLOW
stream. foo2lava-wrapper always runs Ghostscript with the ideal
page dimensions, so that the scale of the image is correct,
regardless whether or not the printer has unprintable regions.
This option is used to move the position of the clipped image
back to where it belongs on the page. The default is to send
the amount which was clipped by -u and -l, and should be good in
most cases.

0 don’t send any logical clipping amounts
1 only send Y clipping amount
2 only send X clipping amount
3 send both X and Y clipping amounts

-z model
Model. The default is [0].

0 LAVAFLOW magicolor 2490 MF
0 LAVAFLOW magicolor 2530 DL
1 OPL magicolor 2480 MF
2 LAVAFLOW magicolor 1600W

Color Tweaking Options
These are the options used to control the quality of color output.
Color correction is currently a WORK IN PROGRESS.

-g gsopts
Additional options to pass to Ghostscript, such as
-g“-dDITHERPPI=nnn”, etc. This option may appear more than
once.

-G profile.icm
Convert profile.icm to a Postscript color rendering dictionary
(CRD) using foo2zjs-icc2ps and adjust the printer colors by
using the Postscript setcolorrendering operator. (WORK IN
PROGRESS).

-G gamma-file.ps
Prepend gamma-file.ps to the Postscript input to perform color
correction using the setcolortransfer Postscript operator. For
example, the file might contain:
{0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} setcolortransfer

-I intent
Select profile intent from the ICM file. 0=Perceptual, 1=Col‐
orimetric, 2=Saturation, 3=Absolute. Default is 0 (perceptual).

Debugging Options
These options are used for debugging foo2lava and its wrapper.

-S plane
Output just a single color plane from a color print and print it
on the black plane. The default is to output all color planes.

1 Cyan
2 Magenta
3 Yellow
4 Black

-D level
Set Debug level [0].

EXAMPLES
Create a monochrome LAVAFLOW stream from a Postscript document, examine
it, and then print it using a RAW print queue:

foo2lava-wrapper testpage.ps > testpage.zm
lavadecode < testpage.zm lpr -P raw testpage.zm Create a color LAVAFLOW stream from a Postscript document: foo2lava-wrapper -c testpage.ps > testpage.zc
