10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: error1901 on Jan 16, '04 06:22:43AM

We wanna do the same thing on Mac OS X Panther Server. But there is no way to choose the "pdf-writing" option because the option key doesn`t work, so you don`t get an extended list to choose "pdf-writing". Anyone got an idea who to integrade the script?

10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: xandros on Mar 21, '05 04:29:40AM

to setup a printer when the command click doesnt work ..

use the cups web interface under http://localhost:631/

well choose p. ex as --
Name:pdfWriter
Device:Pdf Writing
URI: pdf://tmp/
** as output model an arbitrary one **

!** and as final step setup the "model" of the freshly created printer in the print center to "generic" or an apple postscript writer in the info dialog (command i) .. else only error msg will show up in the pdf.log file
