Direct printing of image files does not work #1533
I have taken the attached file worldmap.gif from the internet. I tried to print it an HP PhotoSmart 2600 set up with the newest HPIJS driver (HPLIP 0.9.10) and the settings "PageSize=A4" and "scaling=100". I get a GhostScript error message (error_log attached, job 12):
E [03/Apr/2006:17:34:58 +0200] [Job 10] renderer command: gs -q -dBATCH -dPARANO
E [03/Apr/2006:17:35:00 +0200] [Job 10] renderer return value: 1
To exclude the case of HPIJS having a bug I tried to run the imagetops filter manually:
[root@majax c]# cat /home/test/Desktop/worldmap.gif | /usr/lib/cups/filter/imagetops 1 2 3 4 'PageSize=A4 scaling=100' > worldmap.ps
So this way I have the same result, also if I try again with the attached worldmap.png file, which I generated with ImageMagick: "convert worldmap.gif worldmap.png".
Displaying the images on the screen of printing them on the same printer with FL-Photo 1.2 works fine.
CUPS version is 1.2 SVN rev 5361 and GhostScript is ESP GS 8.15 SVN rev 133.
