Troubleshooting printing to the PCL Secondary
This section provides potential answers to problems that can result from using the PCL Secondary through InfoPrint Manager:
- How can I troubleshoot printing problems with jobs submitted through the PCL Secondary
- To understand problems printing through the PCL Secondary, you must capture the PCL
file that the PCL Secondary creates by converting the IPDS information it receives
from the Primary Print Process. For example, if you are using qprt as your print command, you can capture this converted PCL file from the print queue
that sends the file to the printer.
Once you have shut down this queue, you can find the PCL file in the /var/spool/qdaemon directory on your InfoPrint AIX server.
- The graphics in my PCL file do not print, and I receive errors with the output.
- You might have submitted a file with graphics as either PCL4 or PPDS output. Neither of these data streams support graphics. To make sure that the Sense Type Model (STM) IPDS command created by the PCL Secondary generates the Graphics Command-Set Vector, you should print the output as either PCL5, PCL5c, or PCL6 data.
