tiff printing problems
Dear Hylafax List,
I am having problems printing tiff images I receive via hylafax. I
don't know if this is a ghostscript problem, or a tiff2ps problem but
several things happen depending on what I try:
Case 1 - if I use:
tiff2ps -a2 file.tif | gs -q -sDEVICE=ljet4 -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- - | lpr
It prints a light haze of streaks as a background down the entire
Case 2 - if I use:
tiff2ps file.tif | gs -q -sDEVICE=ljet4 -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- - | lpr
It prints without the haze, but it is missing the tag line at the top
of the page. (It appears to be shifting the text up a line so the tag
line is off the page.)
Case 3 - if I use:
fax2ps file.tif | gs -q -sDEVICE=ljet4 -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- - | lpr
It prints a blank page.
This occurs with a variety of faxes from a variety of sources. I have
also tried the ljet3 driver, and it was even worse.
I am using the latest tiff2ps and the latest libtiff.so, as well as gs
5.50. I am running hylafax-4.1beta1-1rh5.i386.rpm on RH Linux kernel
Bottom line is I can't get the tag line to display without also getting
the haze (which blurs the text of the fax).
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance,
