       ijsgutenprint - Ghostscript driver for Gutenprint


       gs  -sDEVICE=ijs -sIjsServer=/usr/local/bin/ijsgutenprint -sDeviceManu-
       facturer=vendor -sDeviceModel=name [ -dIjsUseOutputFD  ]  -sIjsParams=[
       key1=value1,keyn=valuen... ] [ options ] [ files ]


       ijsgutenprint provides Ghostscript with a Gutenprint driver, supporting
       all printers supported by libgutenprint.

       NOTE: ijsgutenprint should never be called directly.  Ghostscript  will
       run  it  if  the  IjsServer parameter is set to IjsServer=ijsgutenprint
       when invoking the IJS driver.

       NOTE: The  only  supported  method  of  running  ijsgutenprint  is  via
       Foomatic.   Users  running  ghostscript directly will not be supported.
       The driver name used by Foomatic is gutenprint-ijs.5.2.


       ijsgutenprint accepts  the  following  Ghostscript  IJS  options.   The
       Gutenprint-specific options are not documented here.

              This option should be specified whenever output from Ghostscript
              will go to stdout or into a pipe.  It may be  specified  in  all
              other cases, with only a slight performance degradation.

              This parameter contains a single string containing a comma-sepa-
              rated list of sub-options.

       -sDeviceManufacturer=vendor -sDeviceModel=name
              This option must be supplied.  There is  no  default.   The  IJS
              driver  requires the vendor (it's part of the protocol), but the
              ijsgutenprint driver ignores it.


       The Ghostscript stp driver was originally  written  by  Henryk  Richter
       (,  and was integrated into Gutenprint dur-
       ing the 3.1 development series.  Gutenprint (which was named Gimp-Print
       prior  to  release  5.0) itself was originally written by Michael Sweet
       <>, who released  up  to  version  2.0;  Robert  Krawitz
       released    version    3.0.     The    Gutenprint    development   team
       ( now maintains the entire package.

       The IJS driver was originally written by Russell Lang, and incorporated
       into  Gutenprint (known then as Gimp-Print) in early 2002.  This driver
       corresponds with the IJS protocol 0.32.

       The stp driver is no longer supported as of Gutenprint 5.0.
