    Just an update to this page. With Edgy Eft, step 8 is the "Emblems" tab. Check the icon labeled "Special" then continue with the procedure.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Cups-PDF

    When I add PDF-Printer to my windows xp machine to print to pdf across my network it sort of works. It prints a pdf file to /var/spool/cups-pdf/ANONYMOUS/ instead of a home directory. Plus, it cuts off about 1/2 inch off the side of the each page.

    I'm guessing there is a setting that would allow the output of an anonymous pdf print job to go somewhere else. Where do I find that setting?

    Also, I'm guessing I'm not using the correct print driver. WinXP doesn't have the rev3b (or whatever) printer. I tried several of the "Generic" XP drivers but none of them call themselves postcript. I currently use "MS Publisher Color Printer", but that doesn't work right.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I've answered my own questions.

    Here is the cups-pdf project home page (near as I can tell).
    http://www.physik.uni-wuerzburg.de/~.../welcome.shtml

    The documentation is here...

    In the following file
    Code:
    /etc/cups/cups-pdf.conf
    Change the following line from this
    Code:
    #AnonDirName /var/spool/cups-pdf/ANONYMOUS
    to something like this
    Code:
    AnonDirName /home/public/PDF
    Note that I have /home/public shared out to anyone on my home network so that's good place to dump the pdfs.

    Per the documentation...
    From the cups-pdf documentation, "On the Windows, OS/2 or MacOS system choose a color postscript driver for that network printer (the drivers for Minolta Page Works or HP DesignJet printers do a good job)."
    I selected this printer, "Minolta Color PageWorks/Pro PS", and it works fine.

    Nice How-to

    This thread has been added to the UDSF wiki.

    Cheers...

    This is an update for Edgy:

    1. Install the cups-pdf package
    2. Go to System -> Administration -> Printing
    3. Doubleclick "New Pinter"
    4. There is now a "PDF Printer" detected, select it
    5. Select the Generic, Postscript Color Printer (Rev 3b)
    6. Give it a name, like PDF Printer
    7. Right click on the newly created printer, and select Properties
    8. Click "Print a Test Page"
    9. The file should be in your Home folder, under the PDF folder

    This has less steps than the original because Edgy appears to handle cups-pdf better.
