Print Media Guidelines
Print media is paper, transparencies, labels, envelopes, coated paper among others. Your multifunction
printer provides high-quality printing on a variety of print media. Selecting the appropriate print media for
your multifunction printer helps avoid printing troubles. This section describes how to select print media,
how to care for print media, and how to load the print media in the standard 250-sheet tray or optional 550sheet paper feeder.
Paper
Transparencies
Envelopes
Labels
Storing Print Media
Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications
Paper
For the best print quality in color, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic, grain long paper. For the best print
quality in black and white, use 90 g/m2 (24 lb) xerographic, grain long paper. Before buying large quantities
of any print media, Dell recommends trying a sample first.
When loading paper, identify the recommended print side on the paper package, and load the paper
accordingly. See "Loading Print Media in Standard and Optional Trays" and "Loading the Multipurpose
Feeder" for detailed loading instructions.
Paper Characteristics
The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. Dell recommends that you follow these
guidelines when evaluating new paper stock.
Weight
The tray automatically feeds paper weights from 60 to 216 g/m 2 (16 to 60 lb bond) grain long. The
multipurpose feeder automatically feeds paper weights from 60 to 216 g/m 2 (16 to 80 lb bond) grain long.
Paper lighter than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) might not be stiff enough to feed properly, and could cause paper jams.
For best performance, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) grain long paper.
Curl
Curl is the tendency of print media to curve at its edges. Excessive curl can cause paper feeding problems.
Curl usually occurs after the paper passes through the multifunction printer, where it is exposed to high
temperatures. Storing paper unwrapped, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper curling prior to
printing and cause feeding problems regardless of humidity. When printing on curled paper, straighten the
paper and then insert it into the multipurpose feeder.
Smoothness
The degree of paper smoothness directly affects print quality. If the paper is too rough, the toner does not
fuse to the paper properly, resulting in poor print quality. If the paper is too smooth, it can cause paper
feeding problems. Smoothness between 150 and 250 Sheffield points produces the best print quality.
Moisture Content
The amount of moisture in the paper affects both print quality and the ability of the multifunction printer to
feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original packaging until you are ready to use it. This limits the
exposure of the paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance.
Grain Direction
Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is either grain long, running the
length of the paper, or grain short, running the width of the paper. For 60 to 135 g/m2 (16 to 36 lb bond)
paper, grain long fibers are recommended. For papers heavier than 135 g/m2 (36 lb bond), grain short is
preferred.
Fiber Content
Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically pulped wood. Paper containing fibers
such as cotton possess characteristics that can result in degraded paper handling.
Recommended Paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic paper. Business papers
designed for general business use also provide acceptable print quality. Only use paper able to withstand
high temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions. The laser printing
process heats paper to high temperatures. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the
paper you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.
Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of print media. When choosing any
print media, you should consider the weight, fiber content, and color.
Unacceptable Paper
The following paper types are not recommended for use with the multifunction printer:
Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless
papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper
Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the multifunction printer
Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the printer fuser unit
Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than
±0.09 in., such as optical character recognition (OCR) forms
In some cases, you can adjust registration with your software program to successfully print on these
forms.
Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, thermal papers
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers or curled papers
Recycled papers containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309
Multiple-part forms or documents
Print quality may deteriorate (blank spaces or blotches may appear in the text) when printing on talc
or acid paper.
Selecting Paper
Proper paper selection helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
Always use new, undamaged paper.
Before loading the paper, identify the recommended print side of the paper. This information is usually
indicated on the paper package.
Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source. This may result in a paper jam.
Do not remove trays while a job is printing or Printing is displayed on the operator panel.
Ensure the Paper Type setting is correct. (See "Tray Settings" for detailed information about these
settings.)
Ensure the paper is properly loaded in the tray.
Flex paper back and forth, and then fan them. Straighten the edges of the stack on a level surface.
Selecting Preprinted Forms and Letterhead
When selecting preprinted forms and letterhead paper for the multifunction printer:
Use grain long papers for best results.
Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
Select papers that absorb ink, but do not bleed.
Avoid papers with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
Use papers printed with heat-resistant inks designed for use in xerographic copiers. The ink must
withstand temperatures of 225°C (437°F) without melting or releasing hazardous emissions.
Use inks that are not affected by the resin in toner or the silicone in the fuser unit. Inks that are
oxidation-set or oil-based should meet these requirements; latex inks might not. If you are in doubt,
contact your paper supplier.
Printing on Letterhead
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the pre-printed letterhead you have selected is
acceptable for laser printers.
Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. Use the following table for help when loading
letterhead in the print media sources.
Print media source
Standard 250-sheet tray
Print side
Face up
Letterhead enters the multifunction
printer last
Face down
Letterhead enters the multifunction
printer first

Selecting Pre-punched Paper
Pre-punched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques.
However, it may not be possible to print on the paper to depending on the placement of holes on the paper.
To select and use pre-punched paper:
Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of pre-punched
paper.
Paper should be punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into paper already packaged in a
ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when multiple sheets feed through the multifunction printer. This
may result in a paper jam.
Pre-punched paper can include more paper dust than standard paper. Your multifunction printer may
require more frequent cleaning and feed reliability may not be as good as standard paper.
Weight guidelines for pre-punched paper are the same as non-punched paper.
Transparencies
You can load up to 75 sheets of transparencies in the multipurpose feeder for a single print job. Before
buying large quantities of any print media, Dell recommends trying a sample first.
When printing on transparencies:
Set the paper type to Transparency from the printer driver to avoid damaging your multifunction
printer.
Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Do not use regular transparencies.
Transparencies must be able to withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) without melting, discoloring,
offsetting or releasing hazardous emissions.
Avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies. This may result in poor print quality.
Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.
Non-white transparencies are not supported with the multifunction printer.
Selecting Transparencies
The multifunction printer can print directly on transparencies designed for use in laser printers. Print quality
and durability depend on the transparency used. Before buying large quantities of any print media, Dell
recommends trying a sample first.
The paper type setting for the multipurpose feeder should be set to Transparency to help prevent jams.
(See "Tray Settings" for detailed information about this setting.) Check with the manufacturer or vendor to
determine whether your transparencies are compatible with laser printers that reach temperatures as high
as 205°C (401°F). Only use transparencies that are able to withstand these temperatures without melting,
discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.
Envelopes
You can load a stack of envelopes up to 15 mm (0.59 in.) in height in the multipurpose feeder for a single
print job. Depending on the type of envelope and how they have been stored, loading a large quantity of
envelopes, within the maximum range, may not feed into the multifunction printer. If this happens, reduce
the number of envelopes in the stack. Depending on the choice of envelopes, it is possible to expect variable
levels of light wrinkling. Before buying large quantities of any print media, Dell recommends trying a sample
first. See "Loading the Multipurpose Feeder" for instructions on loading an envelope.
When printing on envelopes:
Use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.
Set the print media source to the multipurpose feeder. Set the paper type to Envelope, and select the
correct size of envelope from the printer driver.
For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m 2 (20 lb bond) paper. You can use up to 105
g/m 2 (28 lb bond) weight for the envelope feeder as long as the cotton content is 25% or less.
Envelopes with 100% cotton content must not exceed 90 g/m 2 (24 lb bond) weight.
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
For best performance, do not use envelopes that:
Have excessive curl or twist
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, embossing
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
Have an interlocking design
Have postage stamps attached
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
Have nicked edges or bent corners
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) without sealing, excessive curling,
wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If you have any doubts about the envelopes you are
considering, check with the envelope supplier.
Adjust the guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
To load envelope in the multipurpose feeder, insert the envelopes with the flaps closed and the shortedge of the envelopes facing into the multifunction printer. The print side must be facing down.
See "Loading the Multipurpose Feeder" for instructions on loading an envelope.
Use one envelope size during a print job.
Ensure the humidity is low because high humidity (more than 60%) and the high printing temperatures
may seal the envelopes.
Labels
Your multifunction printer can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers. Label adhesives,
face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) and
pressure of 25 pounds per square inch (psi). Before buying large quantities of any print media, Dell
recommends trying a sample first.
When printing on labels:
Set the paper type to Label in the Tray Settings. Set the paper type to Label from the printer
driver.
Do not load labels together with paper or transparencies in the same tray. This may result in a jam.
Do not use label sheets with a slick backing material.
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the die cut.
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam.
Partial sheets also contaminate your multifunction printer and your cartridge with adhesive, and could
void your multifunction printer and cartridge warranties.
Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) without sealing, excessive curling,
wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of
the label.
Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. Dell recommends zone coating of
the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates your
multifunction printer and could void your warranty.
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 3 mm (0.125 in.) strip should be removed on the
leading and driver edge, and a non-oozing adhesive should be used.
Remove a 3 mm (0.125 in.) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the
multifunction printer.
Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
Storing Print Media
For proper print media storage, the following guidelines help avoid media feeding problems and uneven print
quality.
For best results, store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21°C
(70°F) and the relative humidity is 40%.
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure that they rest on a flat
surface so that the edges do not buckle or curl.
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.

Capacity
The multipurpose feeder can hold approximately:
150 sheets of the standard paper or 15 mm (0.59 in.) or less in height.
Print Media Dimensions
The multipurpose feeder accepts print media within the following dimensions:
Width - 76.2 mm (3.00 in.) to 220.0 mm (8.66 in.)
Length - 98.4 mm (3.87 in.) to 355.6 mm (14.00 in.)
Loading the Multipurpose Feeder
In addition to plain paper, the multipurpose feeder can use various other sizes and types of print media such
as envelopes, and transparencies.
1. Gently pull open the multipurpose feeder cover.
2. Slide the guides to the edge of the tray. The guides should be fully extended.
3. Insert all media face down and top edge first into the multipurpose feeder.
NOTE: Do not force the print media.
4. Slide both guides until they rest lightly against the edge of the print media stack.

5. Ensure the type setting for the multipurpose feeder is set to the correct value for the print media you
have loaded.
6. Select print media source, size, and type in your software program and select the print media size and
type on the printer operator panel.
Loading Envelopes
To load envelopes in the multipurpose feeder, insert the envelopes with the flaps closed and the short-edge
of the envelopes facing into the multifunction printer. Orientate the print side facing down and slide the
envelope into the entry slot. You can load envelopes up to the maximum fill line in the tray at one time.
NOTE: Ensure to set the envelopes with the flaps completely closed.
NOTICE: Never use envelopes with windows, coated linings, or self-stick adhesives. These lead to
paper jams and damage to the multifunction printer.
Using the Multipurpose Feeder
Load only one size and type of print media during a single print job.
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality print media that is designed for use in
laser printers. For more guidelines on print media, see "Print Media Guidelines."
Do not add or remove print media when there is still print media in the multipurpose feeder or when
the multifunction printer is printing from the multipurpose feeder. This may result in a paper jam.
Print media should be loaded with the recommended print side down and the top of the print media
going into the multipurpose feeder first.
Do not place objects on the multipurpose feeder. Also, avoid pressing down or applying excessive force
on it.
Do not remove any tray while a job is printing from the multipurpose feeder or Printing is displayed
on the operator panel. This may result in a paper jam.
The icons on the multipurpose feeder identify how to load the multipurpose feeder with paper, and how to
turn an envelope for printing.
Linking Trays
Tray linking allows you to load the same size and type of print media in multiple sources. The multifunction
printer automatically links the source/trays and will use the first tray until it runs out, then switch to the
linked tray.
If you load the same size print media in each tray, ensure that the print media is the same type in order to
link the trays.
When the selected trays are loaded with the same size and type of print media, select the Paper Type
settings in the Tray Settings for each source.
To disable tray linking, set the Paper Type to a unique value in each one of the trays. If all trays do not have
the same type of print media when linked, you could mistakenly print a job on the wrong paper type.
Using the Duplex Function
Duplex printing (or two-sided printing) allows you to print on both sides of a sheet of paper. For sizes that
are acceptable for duplex printing, see "Print Media Sizes and Support." Duplex printing is only available
when the optional duplexer is installed on the multifunction printer. For information on how to install the
duplexer, see "Installing a Duplexer."
Using Booklet Print
To use booklet print, you must select either Flip on Short Edge or Flip on Long Edge from the Duplex
menu in the printer properties dialog box and then select Booklet Creation in the Booklet/Poster/Mixed
Document dialog box displayed by clicking the Booklet/Poster/Mixed Document button. From the
Duplex menu, you can define the way 2-sided print pages are bound, and how the printing on the back of
the sheet (even-numbered pages) is oriented in relation to the printing on the front (odd-numbered pages).

Using the Print and Hold Function
When you send a job to the multifunction printer, you can specify in the driver that you want the
multifunction printer to hold the job in memory. When you are ready to print the job, you must go to the
multifunction printer and use the operator panel menus to identify which job in the memory you want to
print. You can use this function to print a confidential job (Secure Print), or verify one copy before printing
additional copies (Proof Print).
NOTE: The multifunction printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you
turn off the multifunction printer. The data on memory is cleared when the multifunction printer is
turned off.
NOTE: Print and Hold functions require a minimum of 384 MB available print memory. Also, you need
to configure the RAM disk settings on both the operator panel and the printer driver.
NOTE: Depending on the documents, its job may be too big for the available memory. In this case, an
error occurs.
NOTE: If a document name is not assigned to your print job in the print driver, the job's name will be
identified using the PC's time and date of submission to distinguish it from other jobs you have stored
under your name.
Printing and Deleting Held Jobs
Once held jobs are stored in print memory, you can use the printer operator panel to specify what you want
to do with one or more of the jobs. You can select either Secure Print and Proof Print from "Stored
Print". Then, you select your user name from a list. If you select Secure Print, you must type the password
you specified in the driver when you sent the job. See "Secure Print" for more information.

in memory so you can print the job later. See "Printing and Deleting Held Jobs" for more information.
NOTE: The multifunction printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you
turn off the multifunction printer.
NOTE: When you select Del after Print, the held job is automatically deleted after printing.
Proof Print
If you send a Proof Print job, the multifunction printer prints one copy and holds the remaining copies you
requested from the driver in print memory. Use Proof Print function to examine the first copy to see if it is
satisfactory before printing the remaining copies.
See "Printing and Deleting Held Jobs" if you need help printing the additional copies stored in memory.
NOTE: The multifunction printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you
turn off the multifunction printer. The data on memory is cleared when the multifunction printer is
turned off.
NOTE: When you select Del after Print, the held job is automatically deleted after printing.
Secure Print
When you send a job to the multifunction printer, you can specify a password from the driver. The password
must be between 1 and 12 digits using numbers 0-9. The job is then held in print memory until you enter
the same numeric password from the printer operator panel and choose to print or delete the job. This
function is called "Store Print". This ensures that the job does not print until you are there to retrieve it, and
no one else using the multifunction printer can print the job.
When you select Secure Print from Stored Print after selecting your user name, the following prompt is
displayed:
Use Ten Key
[XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX]
Use the buttons on the operator panel to enter the numeric password associated with your confidential job.
As you enter the password, the password you entered is displayed to ensure confidentiality.
If you enter an invalid password, the message Wrong Password appears. Wait three seconds, or Press
Cancel to return to the screen for user selection.
or

you entered. The print jobs matching the password you entered appear on the screen. You can then choose
to print or delete jobs matching the password you entered. (See "Printing and Deleting Held Jobs" for more
information.)
NOTE: The multifunction printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you
turn off the multifunction printer. The data on memory is cleared when the multifunction printer is
turned off.
NOTE: When you select Del after Print, the held job is automatically deleted after printing.

Scanning Overview
Use your Dell™ Multifunction Color Laser Printer 3115cn to turn pictures and text into editable images on
your computer.
PaperPort is a program that you organize, find and share all your paper and digital documents, and is
supplied with your multifunction printer.
The resolution setting to use when you scan an item depends on the item type and how you plan to use the
image or document after you scan it in to your computer. For the best results, use these recommended
settings.
Type
Resolution
Documents
300 dpi black-and-white or 200 dpi grayscale or
color
Documents of poor quality or that contain small text 400 dpi black-and-white or 300 dpi grayscale
Photographs and pictures
100-200 dpi color or 200 dpi grayscale
Images for an inkjet printer
150-300 dpi
Images for a high-resolution printer
300-600 dpi
Scanning above these recommended resolutions may exceed the capabilities of the application. If you
require a resolution above those recommend in the above table, you should reduce the size of the image by
previewing (or pre-scan) and cropping before scanning the image.
NOTE: You can use PaperPort's built-in OCR software to copy text from scanned documents so that
you can use and edit the text in any text editing, word processing, or spreadsheet program. The OCR
process requires textual images scanned at 150-600 dpi and 300 dpi or 600 dpi is recommended for
graphics.
If you prefer to use another application, such as Adobe PhotoShop, you must assign the application to the
multifunction printer by selecting it from the list of available applications via the Select Software button each
time you start scanning. If you do not assign an application to the Select Software button, PaperPort is
automatically selected when you start scanning. Refer to "Printer Settings Utility".
NOTE: PaperPort application for Microsoft Windows Vista may not be available, for more information
see the Dell Support website at www.support.dell.com .
Dell ScanCenter is a PaperPort application that enables you to scan items and send them directly to
PaperPort or other programs on your computer without first running PaperPort. Dell ScanCenter runs as a
separate application from the Windows Start menu and displays the Dell ScanCenter bar. For more
information about using Dell ScanCenter, refer to the PaperPort's Help menu.
Icons on the Dell ScanCenter bar represent the programs that are limited to PaperPort and to Dell
ScanCenter. To scan and send an item to a program, click the program icon and then scan the item. Dell

About Sharing the Multifunction Printer on a Network
Locally-shared Printer
You can connect the multifunction printer directly to a selected computer, which is called the "host
computer" on the network. The multifunction printer can then be shared by other users on the network
through a Windows® 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista®, Windows Server®
2003, Windows Server 2008, or Windows NT 4.0 network printer connection.
Wired Network-connected Printer
Your multifunction printer has a built-in network interface. For details, see "Connecting the Multifunction
Printer to the Network".
Printing Across a Network
Whether the multifunction printer is locally connected or network-connected, you need to install the Dell™
Multifunction Color Laser Printer 3115cn software on each computer that prints documents using the
multifunction printer.
Setting Up the Locally Shared Printer
You can share your new printer on the network using the Drivers and Utilities CD that shipped with your
multifunction printer, or using Microsoft's point and print or peer-to-peer method. However, if you use one of
the Microsoft methods, you will not have all of the features, such as the status monitor and other printer
utilities, that are installed with the Drivers and Utilities CD.
To share a locally-attached printer on the network, you need to share the multifunction printer, and then
install the shared printer on network clients:
1. Click Start Settings Printers and Faxes (Printers for Windows 2000).
2. Right-click this printer icon and select Properties.
3. From the Sharing tab, check the Shared this printer (Shared for Windows 2000) check box, and
then type a name in the Shared name (Share as for Windows 2000) text box.
4. Click Additional Drivers and select the operating systems of all network clients printing to this
multifunction printer.
5. Click OK.
If you are missing files, you are prompted to insert the server operating system CD.
For Windows Vista:
1. Click Start
Control Panel
Hardware and Sound
Printers.
2. Right-click the printer's icon and select Sharing.
3. Click the Change sharing options button.
4. The dialog box displaying "Windows needs your permission to continue" appears.
5. Click the Continue button.
6. Check the Share this printer check box, and then type a name in the Share name text box.
7. Click Additional Drivers and select the operating systems of all network clients printing to this
printer.
8. Click OK.

5. Click Additional Drivers and select the processors of all the network clients printing with this printer.
6. Click OK.
7. Click the Browse button and locate the driver in the Drivers and Utilities CD
To check that the multifunction printer was successfully shared:
Ensure the printer object in the Printers and Faxes (Printers for Windows 2000) folder shows it is
shared. For example, in Windows 2000, a hand is shown underneath the printer icon.
Browse My Network Places (Network Neighborhood for Windows 2000). Find the host name of
the server and look for the shared name you assigned to the multifunction printer.
Now that the multifunction printer is shared, you can install the multifunction printer on network clients
using the point and print method or the peer-to-peer method.
Point and Print
This method is usually the best use of system resources. The server handles driver modifications and print
job processing. This lets network clients return to their programs much faster.
If you use the point and print method, a subset of driver information is copied from the server to the client
computer. This is just enough information to send a print job to the multifunction printer.
1. On the Windows desktop of the client computer, double-click My Network Places (Network
Neighborhood for Windows 2000).
2. Locate the host name of the server computer, and then double-click the host name.
3. Right-click the shared printer name, and then click Install.
Wait for the driver information to copy from the server computer to the client computer, and for a new
printer object to be added to the Printers and Faxes (Printers for Windows 2000) folder. The
time this takes varies, based on network traffic and other factors.
Close My Network Places (Network Neighborhood for Windows 2000).

Understanding Fonts
Typefaces and fonts
Bitmapped and Scalable Fonts
Resident Fonts
Symbol Sets
Typefaces and fonts
A font is a set of characters and symbols created with a distinct design. The distinct design is called a
typeface. The typefaces you select add personality to a document. Well-chosen typefaces make a document
easier to read.
The multifunction printer has numerous resident fonts in PCL 5/PCL 6 and Adobe PostScript 3. See "Resident
Fonts" for a listing of all resident fonts.
Weight and style
Typefaces are often available in different weights and styles. These variations modify the original typeface so
you can, for example, emphasize important words in text or highlight book titles. The different weights and
styles are designed to complement the original typeface.
Weight refers to the thickness of the lines that form the characters. Thicker lines result in darker characters.
Some words commonly used to describe the weight of a typeface are bold, medium, light, black, and heavy.
Style refers to other typeface modifications, such as tilt or character width. Italic and oblique are styles
where the characters are tilted. Narrow, condensed, and extended are three common styles that modify the
character widths.
Some fonts combine several weight and style modifications; for example, Helvetica Narrow Bold Oblique. A
group of several weight and style variations of a single typeface is called a typeface family. Most typeface
families have four variations: regular, italic (oblique), bold, and bold italic (bold oblique). Some families have
more variations, as the following illustration for the Helvetica typeface family shows:
Pitch and Point Size
The size of a font is specified as either a pitch or point size, depending on whether the font is fixed space or
proportional.
In fixed space fonts, each character has the same width. Pitch is used to specify the size of fixed space fonts.
It is a measure of the number of characters that will print in one horizontal inch of type. For example, all 10pitch fonts print 10 characters per inch (cpi) and all 12-pitch fonts print 12 cpi:
In proportional (or typographic) fonts, every character can have a different width. Since proportional fonts
have characters with different widths, the font size is specified in point size, not pitch. Point size refers to the
height of the characters in the font. A point is defined as 1/72 inch. The characters in a font printed at 24
point will be twice as large as the characters in the same font printed at 12 point.
The following illustration shows samples of a font printed in different point sizes:
The point size of a font is defined as the distance from the top of the tallest character in the font to the
bottom of the lowest character in the font. Due to the definition of point size, different fonts printed at the
same point size may appear quite different in size. This is because there are other font parameters that
affect how the font looks. However, the point size of a font is an excellent specification of the relative size of
a font. The following examples illustrate two very different proportional fonts at 14 point:
Bitmapped and Scalable Fonts
The multifunction printer uses both bitmapped and scalable fonts.
Bitmapped fonts are stored in print memory as predefined patterns of bits that represent a typeface at a
specific size, style, and resolution. The following illustration shows an example of a character from a
bitmapped font.
Bitmapped fonts are available in different type styles and point sizes as downloadable fonts.
Scalable fonts (also called outline fonts) are stored as computer programs that define the outlines of the
characters in the font. Each time you print characters from a scalable font, the multifunction printer creates a
bitmap of the characters at the point size you choose and saves it temporarily in print memory.
These temporary bitmapped fonts are deleted when you turn off or reset the multifunction printer. Scalable
fonts provide the flexibility of printing in many different point sizes.
Your multifunction printer uses different scalable font formats for downloading fonts to the multifunction
printer. PCL 5/PCL 6 uses Intellifont and TrueType scalable fonts. Adobe PostScript 3 uses Type 1 and
TrueType scalable fonts. There are thousands of different scalable fonts available in these different font
formats from numerous font suppliers.
If you plan to use many downloadable bitmapped or scalable fonts or if you plan to use many different sizes
of scalable fonts, you may need to purchase additional memory for your multifunction printer.
Resident Fonts
Your multifunction printer is equipped with resident fonts stored permanently in print memory. Different
fonts are available in PCL 5/PCL 6 and Adobe PostScript 3. Some of the most popular typefaces, like Courier
and TimesNew (PCL 5/PCL 6)/Times New Roman (Adobe PostScript 3), are available for all printer languages.
The following table lists all the fonts resident in your multifunction printer. See "Printing a Font Sample List"
for instructions on how to print samples of the fonts. You can select the resident fonts from your software
program. You can also select the fonts from the operator panel if you are using PCL 5.

Symbol Sets
A symbol set is the collection of alphabetic and numeric characters, punctuation, and special characters
available in the font you select. Symbol sets support the requirements for different languages or specific
applications, such as math symbols used for scientific text.
In PCL 5/PCL 6, a symbol set also defines which character will print for each key on the keyboard (or more
specifically, for each code point). Some applications require different characters at some code points. To
support multiple applications and languages, your multifunction printer has 36 symbol sets for the resident
PCL 5/PCL 6 fonts.

NOTE: Before buying large quantities of any print media, Dell recommends trying a sample first.
Avoiding Jams
Use only recommended print media. See "Print Media Guidelines" for more information.
See "Loading Print Media in Standard and Optional Trays" and "Loading the Multipurpose Feeder" to
load printer media properly.
Do not overload the print media sources. Ensure the stack print media height does not exceed the
maximum height indicated by the load line labels in the trays.
Do not load wrinkled, creased, damp, or curled print media.
Flex, fan, and straighten print media before you load it. If a jam occurs with print media, try feeding
one sheet at a time through the multipurpose feeder.
Do not use print media that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same print media source.
Ensure the recommended print side is face up when you insert the print media. However, the
recommended print side should be face down when using the multipurpose feeder.
Keep print media stored in an acceptable environment. For more information, see "Storing Print
Media".
Do not remove the feeding tray during a print job.
Push all trays in firmly after loading them.
Ensure all cables that connect to the multifunction printer are correctly attached.
Overtightening the guides may cause jams.
Wipe the feeder rollers in the trays or multipurpose feeder with a cloth that is slightly dampened with
water if jams caused by misfeeding paper occur frequently.

To avoid potential paper feeding problems and uneven print quality, there are several things you can do.
To achieve the best possible print quality, store print media in an environment where the temperature
is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is 40%.
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure that they rest on a flat
surface so the edges do not buckle or curl.
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
Storing Consumables
Store consumables in their original packaging until you need to use them. Do not store consumables in:
Temperatures greater than 40°C (104°F).
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
Direct sunlight.
Dusty places.
A car for a long period of time.
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
An environment with salty air.

Your Dell Multifunction Color Laser Printer 3115cn is compatible with Microsoft, Novell and Linux operating
systems, but Dell technical phone support only supports factory-installed operating systems (Microsoft) for
the first 30 days for free. See http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/compare.aspx/laser?
c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz for more details. The customer will have to purchase technical support from
the manufacturer of the operating system in order to get technical assistance beyond 30 days.

If the customer has other operating systems, such as Novell or Linux, and has purchased Gold Technical
Support (for more information on Gold Technical Support, see
http://www1.us.dell.com/content/topics/global.aspx/services/en/gts?
c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz), the telephone support will be a "best effort" attempt to resolve the operating
system issue. If the manufacturer needs to be contacted, the customer must pay an additional fee for that
support. The only time that Dell pays for the third party support is when Dell is responsible for the issue. In
the case of getting the multifunction printer installed and working, this is configuration and the customer
would be responsible for paying.

Overview
The UNIX Filter
This section describes the features of the UNIX filter and its operating environment.
Features
The UNIX Filter is a utility software which converts files created by the UNIX workstation into a format which
conforms to the PostScript language loaded in the multifunction printer. The utility provides software that
converts text files, SunRaster image files (for Sun/Solaris only), TIFF image files and XWD image files into
the PostScript language program. Also, it makes use of the printer features to output in the following
manner.
Input paper selection
Double-sided printing
Output paper selection
NOTICE: Depending on the configurations of the printers, some may not be able to use the UNIX
filter.
Operating Environment
Text files, SunRaster image files (for Solaris only), TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) image files and XWD (X
Windows Dump) image files received from a workstation connected to the multifunction printer by a USB
cable or parallel cable (hereinafter referred to as the local workstation), or from one located on the network
(hereinafter referred to as the remote workstation), can be converted into the PostScript language program
and output to the multifunction printer.
In addition, it can also be used in an environment where a multifunction printer, installed with an interface
board, is connected directly to the network.
Before Using UNIX Filter
Check the following items before using the UNIX filter.
Before setting up the workstation, set up the multifunction printer as follows:
1. Ensure that the lpd port is working or not when using the network environment. If the lpd port is not
working, set LPD to On on the operator panel. (Mandatory) See "Protocol" for more information.
When a parallel or USB port is to be used, ensure that the USB ports are working. (Mandatory)
2. Set up IP address and subnet mask when the multifunction printer is used in the network environment.
(Mandatory)
3. Make TBCP (Tagged Binary Communication Protocol) Filter function available if TBCP (Tagged Binary
Communication Protocol) Filter function is installed on the multifunction printer. See "Adobe Protocol"
for more information.
Installing the UNIX Filter
Before Installation
The following are required for the installation.
Supported operating system is described in "Page Description Language (PDL)/Emulation, Operating
System, and Interface".
Disk capacity: 20 MB of free disk space required, including temporary working space for installation.
Log on as a root account to perform the operation here. If you have no root privilege, contact your
system administrator.
Output printer must be registered in the workstation before using UNIX filter. (HP-UX)
Use sam command for registration of output printer.
For more information, see the HP-UX related manual.

Authentication Printing
This section provides information on how to specify the user name and password used for
authentication printing in the environment variable.
Specifying the User Name
To specify the User Name for Authentication Printing:
You can specify a unique user name in the environment variable as follows:
% setenv JOWN3115U " jobownername"
You can specify the login name as the user name as follows:
% setenv JOWN3115U ""
NOTE: Up to 32 characters are acceptable for the user name. When a user name exceeds allowable
character length, the extra characters are ignored.
NOTE: If you specify the filter option when authentication printing is already specified, the filter option
has the higher priority over authentication printing.
Specifying the Password
To Specify the Password for Authentication Printing:
If you need to specify the password in authentication printing, you can specify the password in the
environment variable as follows:
% setenv JOWN3115P "password"
If you do not specify the password inexplicitly, type as follows:
% setenv JOWN3115P ""
NOTE: Acceptable password length is between 4 and 12 characters. When an unacceptable character
is specified for password, or when a specified password is not within the range of the allowable
character length, the extra characters are ignored.
NOTE: If you specify the filter option when authentication printing is already specified, the filter option
has the higher priority over authentication printing.
NOTE: If you only specify the password without specifying the user name in the environment variable,
the login name is assumed as the user name.
NOTICE: If you enter the password in the login file for automatically allocating the environment
variable when you log in, you are recommended to specify the appropriate access privilege that
prevents unauthorized users from reading the login file.

Function
Reads text, converts it to the PostScript language program, and writes to standard output. If the filename is
not specified, the standard input will be taken as the command input.
By typing character strings in the environmental variable TXT2PS2OPTION, the input of option at the
command line can be omitted.
At the environmental variable TXT2PS2OPTION and the command line, if no option is specified, the
multifunction printer will output in 10-point font size in the portrait orientation.
At the environmental variable TXT2PS2OPTION and the command line, if the same option is specified, the one
specified at the command line will prevail.
txt2ps2 outputs the PostScript language program that adjusts the line/column according to the paper size.
For this reason, the user need not be aware of the paper size. If there is an option to specify the
line/column, automatic line feed according to the paper size will not be executed. Printing will be output
according to the line/column specified.
txt2ps2 interprets the following control codes. Other control codes/undefined codes will be converted to octal
numbers and output as-is.
LF
Line feed
FF
Form feed (modifiable by option)
TAB
8-column tab stop (modifiable by option)
BS

-Jown=jobownername: Password Authentication Setting
Specifies the job owner name and password for authentication.
When only job owner name is specified (-Jown=jobownername:) (no password specified),
authentication password is treated as not specified.
When only password is specified (-Jown=:password) (no job owner name specified), login
user name is used as job owner name. Entered password is used as authentication
password.
When neither of job owner name nor password is specified (-Jown=:), login user name is
used as job owner name, and authentication password is treated as not specified.
When a job owner name exceeds allowable character length, the extra characters are
ignored.
When an unacceptable character is specified for job owner name, "Unknown User" is used
as job owner name.
NOTE: Characters acceptable for job owner name are alphanumeric characters and symbols, except
for space and colon.
NOTE: Up to 32 characters are acceptable for job owner name.
When an unacceptable character is specified for password, or when a specified password is
not within the range of the allowable character length, the authentication password is
treated as not specified.
NOTE: Only numbers are acceptable for password.
NOTE: Acceptable password length is between 4 and 12 characters.
Incomplete form of -Jown option is treated as no authentication setting being made. In such case, if
authentication setting is made with the environmental variable, it is used as setting information.
Example
To convert the program list of the file.txt file into the PostScript language program that sets the paper to
the landscape orientation and prints in the 2-up mode, type as follows:
% txt2ps2 -r -2 file.txt | lpr (for Linux)
% txt2ps2 -r -2 file.txt | lp (for Solaris/HP-UX)
To convert file.txt to the PostScript language program and output it to the file.ps file, type as follows:
% txt2ps2 file.txt > file.ps
% lpr file.ps (for Linux)
% lp file.ps (for Solaris/HP-UX)
To convert the output result of the command into the PostScript language program using txt2ps2 and print it
to the multifunction printer, type as follows:
% ls -alF | txt2ps2 | lpr (for Linux)
% ls -alF | txt2ps2 | lp (for Solaris/HP-UX)
Environmental Variable
TXT2PS2OPTION
Optional settings based on the environmental variable. To output in the 2-up mode, 8 points and the
landscape orientation, type as follows:
% setenv TXT2PS2OPTION "-2 -s8 -r"
To use the same options as those of the dellpsif filter specified by printcap, type as follows:
% setenv TXT2PS2OPTION "<dellpsif>"
File
/usr/local/dellbin3115/.dellpsdefault3115
This is the default command option setting file for individual users.
Important
When the same option is specified twice, the later setting will prevail. As TXT2PS2OPTION is analyzed
before the option of the command line, it is possible to temporarily modify the options already set in
TXT2PS2OPTION by typing at the command line.
The comment description (%%page:m n) of the page number cannot be output to the PostScript
program file which is output by the default option of txt2ps2. Thus, when the output of txt2ps2 is to be
taken as the output of another application (psrev of TRANSCRIPT, etc.), add the page number
description by inserting the line command (-Ilines).
If a BS code is found at the beginning of a line, the print position of the next character will be located
at the left of the beginning of the line.
When there are multiple tab codes in one line, the tab position may be off as a result of automatic line
feed. In such case, use the -I or -w option.
The number of columns specified by the -w option is not the actual number of printed characters. The
actual number of single-byte characters to be printed is derived by deducting the output column
position (outcolumns) specified by the o option from the number of columns specified by the -w option.
The -mg option cannot be specified when -w, -l, -o, and -L option are specified.
The start positions of margin of the margin command (-mg=u:b:r:l) are not set against the edge of
the paper. The margins are set against the printable area of the paper allowed by the multifunction
printer.
Use the -ps option only when a PostScript file that contains no %! at the beginning of the file is used as
the PostScript file. If a normal text file is input, it will not function correctly.
In HP-UX, txt2ps2 considers files written by PostScript that contain %! at the beginning of the file as
the PostScript files. To print PostScript files as text files, specify the TX option. With this option,
PostScript files will be processed as text files.

-Jown=jobownername: Password Authentication Setting
Specifies the job owner name and password for authentication.
When only job owner name is specified (-Jown=jobownername:) (no password specified),
authentication password is treated as not specified.
When only password is specified (-Jown=:password) (no job owner name specified), login
user name is used as job owner name. Entered password is used as authentication
password.
When neither of job owner name nor password is specified (-Jown=:), login user name is
used as job owner name, and authentication password is treated as not specified.
When a job owner name exceeds allowable character length, the extra characters are
ignored.
When an unacceptable character is specified for job owner name, "Unknown User" is used
as job owner name.
NOTE: Characters acceptable for job owner name are alphanumeric characters and symbols, except
for space and colon.
NOTE: Up to 32 characters are acceptable for job owner name.
When an unacceptable character is specified for password, or when a specified password is
not within the range of the allowable character length, the authentication password is
treated as not specified.
NOTE: Only numbers are acceptable for password.
NOTE: Acceptable password length is between 4 and 12 characters.
Incomplete form of -Jown option is treated as no authentication setting being made. In such
case, if authentication setting is made with the environmental variable, it is used as setting
information.

Function
Reads TIFF data, converts it to the PostScript language program and writes to standard output. If the
filename is not specified, the standard input will be taken as the command input. TIFF files with a pixel depth
of 1, 4, 8, 24, and 32 bits can be specified.
There are four types of supported compression formats.
Huffman compression (CCITT Group 3 transformed Huffman run length encoding)
Fax-CCITT3 compression (facsimile-compatible CCITT Group 3)
PackBits compression
Non-compression
Even in the above compression format, the TIFF file that has multiple images in one file is not supported.
tiff2ps2 takes filename as having been created in 72 dpi and calculates the output size. Thus, to convert TIFF
files created in other resolutions, specify the size option (-s, -S) explicitly for conversion.

-Jown=jobownername: Password Authentication Setting
Specifies the job owner name and password for authentication.
When only job owner name is specified (-Jown=jobownername:) (no password specified),
authentication password is treated as not specified.
When only password is specified (-Jown=:password) (no job owner name specified), login
user name is used as job owner name. Entered password is used as authentication
password.
When neither of job owner name nor password is specified (-Jown=:), login user name is
used as job owner name, and authentication password is treated as not specified.
When a job owner name exceeds allowable character length, the extra characters are
ignored.
When an unacceptable character is specified for job owner name, "Unknown User" is used
as job owner name.
NOTE: Characters acceptable for job owner name are alphanumeric characters and symbols, except
for space and colon.
NOTE: Up to 32 characters are acceptable for job owner name.
When an unacceptable character is specified for password, or when a specified password is
not within the range of the allowable character length, the authentication password is
treated as not specified.
NOTE: Only numbers are acceptable for password.
NOTE: Acceptable password length is between 4 and 12 characters.
Incomplete form of -Jown option is treated as no authentication setting being made. In such case, if
authentication setting is made with the environmental variable, it is used as setting information.
Example
To convert the XWD image into the PostScript language program and output it to a file, type as follows:
% xwd2ps2 file.xwd > file.ps
To output the XWD image to a multifunction printer, type as follows:
% xwd2ps2 file.xwd | lpr (for Linux)
% xwd2ps2 file.xwd | lp (for Solaris/HP-UX)
Important
When -s and -S are specified at the same time or when the same option is specified twice, the later
setting will prevail.
When the output size option (-s, -S) is not specified, scaling will be executed taking one pixel of the
TIFF data as one pixel of the multifunction printer.
If the print position option (-lleft bottom) specifies a point beyond the printable area of the
multifunction printer, data beyond the printable area will not be printed.
dellpsif (Linux)
Format
/usr/local/dellbin3115/dellpsif -w width -l length -i indent -n login -h host accountfile
Function
If the first two characters of the input data are not %!, the dellpsif filter will convert it to the PostScript
language program that can be output according to the paper size. If the first two characters of the input data
are %!, it will be considered the PostScript language program and no data conversion will be executed. The
following control codes are interpreted for the conversion of input data.
LF
Line feed
FF
Form feed
TAB
8-column tab stop
BS
Backspace 1 character
The dellpsif is the hard link file of txt2ps2.
The dellpsif filter will be used as the IF filter specified by /etc/printcap.
The lpd daemon will specify the following command options and start up the dellpsif filter.
dellpsif -w width -l length -i indent -n login -h host accountfile
In addition, options usable by txt2ps2 can be specified by the
/usr/local/dellbin3115/.dellpsdefault3115 file. With this option, detailed control can be achieved.
However, if the input data are PostScript files, only the following options of txt2ps2 will become valid.
-d
Enables the short-edge binding feature. When it is specified, the printing direction or position will be
adjusted and both sides of the paper printed so that the shorter edge of the pages can be bound. This
option is available only when the optional duplexer is installed on the multifunction printer.
-D
Enables the long-edge binding feature. When it is specified, the printing direction or position will be
adjusted and both sides of the paper printed so that the longer edge of the pages can be bound. This
option is available only when the optional duplexer is installed on the multifunction printer.
-Itray-input
Specifies the paper tray.
The parameters to be able to specify are the same as txt2ps2.
-t
Turns on the save toner mode for printing. The print result will be fainter than that of normal printing.
In some cases, this option will be ignored.
-E
This function turns on the image enhancement function. In some cases, this option will be ignored.
-Nc=copies
Specifies the number of output copies (the value of copies must be a positive integer).
-Cl
Specifies that printing be collated. If the copies option is not specified, this option will be ignored.
-ps
The input file will be processed as the PostScript file. If the file does not begin with %!, %! will be
output to the beginning line. For files with %!, this option will be ignored.
-MSI
Specifies multipurpose feeder.
-M=type
Specifies multipurpose feeder Paper Type.
If this option is not specified, multipurpose feeder Paper Type of the multifunction printer can be used.
-Mfo=mode
Specifies orientation for multipurpose feeder.
-Pon

Specifies adjustment value for color balance of each color/density.
-Cb Option value must be specified in the following order:
Cyan low density, Cyan medium density, Cyan high density, Magenta low density, Magenta medium
density, Magenta high density, Yellow low density, Yellow medium density, Yellow high density, Black
low density, Black medium density, Black high density
If no value is specified, it is treated as "0"(Normal).
File
/usr/local/dellbin3115/.dellpsdefault3115
This is the default command option setting.
Important
The dellpsif filter ignores the pw and pl entries of /etc/printcap. Thus, the pw and pl entries cannot
be used to change the option of each paper size.
If the same option is specified for PostScript files which already have added options, such as paper
selection, it will be ignored.
Use the -ps option only when a PostScript file that contains no %! at the beginning of the file is
processed as the PostScript file. If a normal text file is input, it will not function correctly.
Precautions and Limitations
During Installation
Pay attention to the following points during the installation.
Solaris
Use lpadmin command to register the default printer.
# lpadmin -d PrinterName
To inhibit the banner sheets output, change the value of nobanner=no to nobanner=yes that includes in
the file corresponding to the printer name in /etc/lp/interfaces/.
The printer registered by UNIX filter must not be changed by admintool.
When Content types: postscript is displayed by typing lpstat -p printername -l, it's necessary
to delete the printer and reinstall.
To install UNIX filter into the default directory (/usr/local/dellbin3115), it's necessary to create
/usr/local directory in advance.
HP-UX
The multifunction printer to specify as an output printer must be registered in your system. To register
an output printer, use sam command and so on. See the HP-UX related manual for details.
To install UNIX filter into the default directory (/usr/local/dellbin3115), it's necessary to create
/usr/local directory in advance.
Linux
To install UNIX filter into the default directory (/usr/local/dellbin3115), it's necessary to create
/usr/local directory in advance.
During Printing
Pay attention to the following points during printing.
Using lp/lpr Command (Linux/Solaris/HP-UX)
If an option is specified incorrectly, no error message will be output. If printing is not executed after
the lp command is executed, activate each utility individually and error messages will be output.
(Using Solaris, the error message is displayed on the screen. Using Linux, the error message is written
into the error log file specified by printcap.)
In text printing, the environmental variable TXT2PS2OPTION will be ignored.
In text printing, if a BS code is found at the beginning of a line, the print position of the next character
will be on the left of the beginning of the line.
In text printing, when there are multiple tab codes in one line, the positions of tab may be off due to
automatic line feed. If this happens, specify l or w option.
In text printing, the number of columns specified by the w option does not reflect the number of
characters actually printed. The actual number of single-byte characters to be printed is derived by
deducting the output column position (out columns) specified by the o option from the number of
columns specified by the w option.
If the same option is specified, or if s, S are both specified, the one specified later will prevail.
In printing images, If the print position option (l) specifies an area beyond the printable area of the
multifunction printer, data beyond the printable area will not be printed. (Using Solaris, it's impossible
to output images by lp command.)
Using txt2ps2 (Linux/Solaris/HP-UX)
When the same option is specified twice, the later setting will prevail. As TXT2PS2OPTION is analyzed
before the option of the command line, it is possible to temporarily modify the options already set in
TXT2PS2OPTION by inputting at the command line
The default output of txt2ps2 cannot output the comment description (%%page:m n)of the page
number. This is because the converted PostScript language program controls line feed and form feed.
Thus, when the output of txt2ps2 is to be taken as the output of another application (psrev of
TRANSCRIPT, etc.), add the page number description by inserting the line command (-Ilines).
If a BS code is found at the beginning of a line, the print position of the next character will be on the
left of the beginning of a line.
When there are multiple tab codes in one line, the positions of tab may be off due to automatic line
feed. If this happens, specify the -l or -w option.
The number of columns specified by the -w option does not reflect the number of characters actually
printed. The actual number of single-byte characters to be printed is derived by deducting the output
column position (out columns) specified by the o option from the number of columns specified by the w
option.
The -mg option cannot be specified when -w, -l, -o, and -L option are specified.
The start positions of margins of the margin command (-mg=u:b:r:l) are not set against the edge of
paper. The margins are set against the printable area for paper allowed by the multifunction printer.
Use the -ps option only when a PostScript file that contains no %! at the beginning of the file is used as
the PostScript file. If a normal text file is input, it will not function correctly.
To use the same options as those of the dellpsif filter by TXT2PS2OPTION, set the user's home directory
in the environmental variable HOME. If the environmental variable HOME is not set up, the same options
as those of the dellpsif filter cannot be used. (Linux)
Using sunras2ps2/tiff2ps2/xwd2ps2 (sunras2ps2 apply to Solaris only)
If the same option is specified, or if s, S are both specified, the one specified later will prevail.
If the size option (s, S) is not specified, scaling will be executed taking one pixel of the image data as
one pixel of the multifunction printer.
If the print position option (-l left bottom) specifies a point beyond the printable area of the
multifunction printer, data beyond the printable area will not be printed.
Using tiff2ps2 (Linux/Solaris/HP-UX)
There are four types of supported compression formats.
Huffman compression (CCITT Group 3 transformed Huffman run length encoding)
Fax-CCITT3 compression (facsimile-compatible CCITT Group 3)
PackBits compression
Non-compression
Even if the format is a supported format, the tiff that has multiple images in one file is not supported.
Using xwd2ps2 (Linux/Solaris/ HP-UX)
There are three
The visual class
The visual class
The visual class
types of supported compression formats.
is Static Gray and the pixel is 1 bit.
is Pseudo Color and the pixel is 4 bits or 8 bit. The image format is Zpixmap.
is True Color and the pixel is 24 bits. The image format is Zpixmap.
Using dellpsif (Linux)
Use the -ps option only when a PostScript file that contains no %! at the beginning of the file is used as
the PostScript file. If a normal text file is input, it will not function correctly.
-w, -l option usually correspond to pw, pl entry of /etc/printcap. However, this UNIX filter ignore
pw, pl entry of /etc/printcap. So, the option cannot be changed by each page size using pw, pl entry.
Printing PostScript Files (Linux/Solaris/ HP-UX)
If same options for the PostScript file that contains options, such as paper size, are specified using
dellpsif (Linux) or the lp command (Solaris/HP-UX), the specified option will be ignored.
Printing Image Files (Solaris)
To print image files from Solaris the user cannot specify the image file directly with the lp command for
printing. Make use of sunras2ps2, tiff2ps2, xwd2ps2 and convert the file to a PostScript file. Output it
using the lp command after the conversion.
% xwd2ps2 file.xwd | lp
The double-sided printing (Linux/Solaris/HP-UX)
The multifunction printer without an optional duplexer is unable to do double-sided printing.
Header/footer Option (-Hd=position:format:page, -Hfheaderfont)
(txt2ps2,sunras2ps2,tiff2ps2,xwd2ps2)
If the paper size is not specified when using options, it outputs the header/footer at the position of A4size paper. To specify the paper size at the same time to use header/footer option. (If the paper size
for the PostScript file converted by using the option is specified by the option of lp command for
example, the position of the header and footer cannot be changed.)
The margin is specified automatically when the option is used. When the option to specify the margin is
used at the same time, the value that is smaller than the value specified automatically as follows is
ignored.
In case of text files
Upper margin: 0.23 inch
Lower margin: 0.06 inch
Right margin: 0.03 inch
Left margin: 0.09 inch
In case of images
Lower margin: 0.3 inch
When using the option, the number of lines and the number of columns specified are ignored. Also, it is
impossible to specify landscape and 2-column.
In case of the PostScript file, it happens that the multifunction printer doesn't output all pages despite
that output all page is specified. In such a case, specify print the only top page.
It's impossible to use lp command in Solaris.
TBCP Filter (Solaris/Linux/HP-UX)
Ensure that the TBCP Filter is available so the multifunction printer can specify the availability of the
TBCP Filter.
