HP DesignJet 500ps - Panther resolves the issues
Authored by: strunx on Jan 31, '05 04:25:37PM

If you use DesignJets with internal Ethernet MIO NIC rather than AppleTalk Serial MIO you can set up an fixed IP and then either use LPR or IPP in PrintCenter. Just use HP or GimpPrint provided ppd's.
You should now be able to print HPGL files via terminal using lpr -l filepath.
See the man pages for more options. If you prefer the Mac-flavour use DropPrint 1.4 or an Apple/Shell Script Folder-Action.
Works fine with my DJ2500CP. Even though I cannot plot directly from my Application (it lacks a driver) but I can simply export HPGL to a folder acting as a print-queue.
