Starting the InfoPrint SMIT production print interface

There are two methods of starting the InfoPrint SMIT production print interface:
  • If you are at an AIX command prompt, enter one of these commands:
    • To access the Production Print Operations panel in the AIXwindows mode, enter:
      startppo
    • To access the Production Print Operations panel in the ASCII mode, enter:
      startppo -t
      All InfoPrint SMIT production print interface SMIT panels display in ASCII mode; however, status windows display as graphical motif windows.
  • If you are using the InfoPrint SMIT production print interface, follow these steps:
    1. Return to the main panel titled InfoPrint Production Printing System.
    2. Click Production Print Operations.
    Note:
  1. You cannot change queues as specified by the queue information file if you access the InfoPrint SMIT production print interface through a SMIT session that was not started with the startppo command.
  2. The startppo command also has a -g flag that you can use to control the initial size and position of the InfoPrint SMIT production print interface window. Specify the value for the flag in the form:
    width×height+xoffset+yoffset
    For example, if you enter startppo -g 800×500+100+200, the window that opens is 800 pels wide, 500 pels high, offset 100 pels from the left edge of the terminal display, and down 200 pels from the top of the display.
  3. You cannot start the ASCII mode of the InfoPrint SMIT production print interface in the background. For example, do not use this command:
    startppo -t &
