10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: oink on Nov 25, '03 05:42:58PM

I never installed ghostscript, but "which pstopdf" returns "/usr/bin/pstopdf". The script works. May be there is a difference between "ps2pdf" and "pstopdf".

If only someone can point me a way to make a ps file short of using the "save to file" output options at the print dialog. Output options seems to be crippled (limited) for super user, which is my normal login. "Save to file" is not available... I have to log in as normal user to do just that!

10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: argho on Mar 14, '04 09:23:01AM

One difference between the ps2pdf of AFPL Ghostscript and the pstopdf provided by Apple seems to be the filesize they create with default settings. For a 20 page magazine ps2pdf produces roughly 1MB while pstopdf produces 21MB. Does anyone know how to modify the quality settings of the one provided by Apple?
