Gilbert, we use the netpbm package rather than convert. /usr/local/bin/tifftopnm $file | pnmtops -w 11 -h 17 | lp -d $printerThis seems to work pretty well.
We got the package sometime ago from * wuarchive.wustl.edu (188.8.131.52), directory /graphics/graphics/packages/NetPBM Not sure if it is still there, but a search for netpbm might bring you joy ;-) David
Hello all, I am using the linux/unix "convert" command to change FTP'd DiFAX maps into Postscript files to print them. Since an upgrade to Redhat 7.3, the output PS files have grown from ~1.5 MB to 13 MB. Is there any way I can make them smaller? My printer (HP LaserJet 4000) is choking on them due to the large size. Any help greatly appreciated.
