printing pdf-Files from HP-UX

Hi all,

I would like to print a pdf-File from my HP-UX box via commandline to a remote network printer. I tried using Ghostscript 8.62, but ... no success.

Anybody any suggestions how to use gs? Any other (better) idea?

Thanks in advance

Re: printing pdf-Files from HP-UX

As Acrobat for HP-UX is pretty old and is obviously not longer supportet by Adobe I would like to do it without Acrobat as a filter.

I was able to print pdf-Documents using pdf2ps as the potscript converter. But the quality is very poor.

Any ideas how to improve the quality?

Script pdf2ps with appropriate commandline options fit our needs.

Thanks for your help.
