foo2slx is an open source driver for the printer for printers that use imaging software application foo2slx KK is a open source driver for the printer for printers that use imaging software KK SLX wire protocol for their print data, such as the Lexmark C500n. These printers are often erroneously called winprinters or GDI printers. However, Microsoft GDI only mandates the API between an application and printer driver, not the protocol on the wire between the printer driver and printer. In fact, printers are raster printers SLX happens to use a very efficient wire protocol which was developed by Zenographics and cloned by Software Imaging KK and authorized by most major printer manufacturers for at least some of their lines products. SLX is a son of many protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc.This driver uses Ghostscript to do all the heavy (image processing). There are six main components to the printer driver foo2slx. · Foo2slx - the page image engine conversion protocol driver. Foo2slx ·-wrapper - a shell script (compatible with foomatic) which runs ghostscript and foo2slx in a pipeline. · Icc2ps - converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the users Postscript program. · Foomatic-db - entries foomatic database, which describe the supported printers and their options so that queues printer how to access the printer using foo2slx-wrapper. · Slxdecode - a tool that allows developers to control the flow SLX. Opldecode · - a tool for developers to inspect use T OPL streams.DON 'Package foo2zjs Ubuntu, SuSE, Mandrake / Manrivia, Debian, RedHat, Gentoo, MacOSX, or BSD!
