Authored by: aequitas on Nov 25, '03 05:46:49PM
When i add the printer, make it a desktop icon and use it with a omnioutliner document my /tmp/pdf.log lookes like this:

I am runnign into this also trying an efax (.efx) file. I think os x somehow converts it to a postscript file before converting to pdf via the print dialogue. And that step is being skipped with this script, non standard file formats or formats pstopdf doesnt understand wont work.
