Storing Print Media
Identifying Print Media and Specifications
Print media is paper, labels, envelopes, and coated paper among others. Your printer provides high-quality printing on a
variety of print media. Selecting the appropriate print media for your printer helps avoid printing troubles. This section
describes selecting print media, caring for print media, and loading the print media in the tray 1 or optional 550-sheet
feeder.
Paper
For the best print quality in color, use 75 g/m 2 (20 lb) xerographic, grain long paper. For the best print quality in black
and white, use 90 g/m 2 (24 lb) xerographic, grain long paper. It is recommended that you try a sample first before buying
large quantities of any print media.
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 Print Media in the MPF" for detailed loading
instructions.
Paper Characteristics
The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. It is recommended 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 80 lb bond) grain long. The multipurpose feeder
(MPF) automatically feeds paper weights from 60 to 216 g/m 2 (16 to 80 lb bond) grain long. Paper lighter than 60 g/m 2
(16 lb) may not feed properly, and could cause paper jams. For best performance, use 75 g/m 2 (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 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 MPF.
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 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/m 2 (16 to 36 lb bond) paper, grain long fibers are
recommended. For paper heavier than 135 g/m 2 (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/m 2 (20 lb) xerographic paper. Business paper 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 printer:
Chemically treated paper used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless paper, carbonless
copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper
Preprinted paper with chemicals that may contaminate the printer
Preprinted paper that can be affected by the temperature in the fuser
Preprinted paper that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than ±0.09 inches, 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 paper (erasable bond), synthetic paper, thermal paper
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface paper, or curled paper
Recycled paper 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 the tray while a job is printing.
Ensure that 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 Media and Letterhead
When selecting preprinted media and letterhead paper for the printer:
Use grain long paper for best results.
Use only media and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
Select paper that absorb ink, but do not bleed.
Avoid paper with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
Use paper 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. Inks that are oxidation-set or oilbased 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
Print side
Page orientation
Face up
Tray 1
Letterhead enters the printer first
550-sheet feeder
1100-sheet feeder
Face down
MPF

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 printer. This may result in a paper jam.
Pre-punched paper can include more paper dust than standard paper. Your 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 MPF or tray 1 for a single print job. It is recommended that you try
a sample first before buying large quantities of any print media.
When printing on transparencies:
Set the paper type to Transparency from the printer driver to avoid damaging your 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 printer.
Selecting Transparencies
The printer can print directly on transparencies designed for use in laser printers. Print quality and durability depend on
the transparency used. It is recommended that you try a sample first before buying large quantities of any print media.
The paper type setting for the MPF 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.
NOTE: For the tray 1, setting paper size is not required. The tray 1 detects the paper size automatically. For more
information on supported paper size for the standard and optional trays, see "Supported Paper Sizes."
Envelopes
Depending on the choice of envelopes, it is possible to expect variable levels of light wrinkling. It is recommended that you
try a sample first before buying large quantities of any print media. See "Loading Print Media" 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 MPF or tray 1. 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 freshly unpacked, undamaged envelopes.
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 MPF, insert the envelopes with the flaps closed and the short-edge of the envelopes facing
into the printer. The print side must be facing down.
See "Loading Print Media in the MPF" 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.
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
NOTE: You can load envelopes also on the tray 1. For more information, see "Loading an Envelope in Standard
Trays."
Labels
Your 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).
It is recommended that you try a sample first before buying large quantities of any print media.
When printing on labels:
Set the paper type to Label from the printer driver.
Do not load labels together with paper 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 inches) 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 printer and your cartridge with adhesive, and could void your 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 inches) 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. It is recommended that zone coating of the
adhesive is at least 1 mm (0.04 inches) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates your printer and could
void your warranty.
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 3 mm (0.125 inches) strip should be removed on the leading and
driver edge, and a non-oozing adhesive should be used.
Remove a 3 mm (0.125 inches) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the 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.

Store your print media properly. For more information, see "Storing Print Media."
Avoiding Paper Jams
NOTE: It is recommended that you try a limited sample of any print media you are considering using with the
printer before purchasing large quantities.
By selecting appropriate print media and loading it properly, you can avoid paper jams. See the following instructions on
loading print media:
"Loading Print Media in Standard and Optional Trays" (which includes the tray 1, the optional 550-sheet feeder,
and the optional 1100-sheet feeder)
"Loading Print Media in the MPF"
"Avoiding Jams"
If you experience a jam, see "Clearing Jams" for instructions.
Sending a Job to Print
To support all of the printer features, use the printer driver. When you choose Print from a software program, a window
representing the printer driver opens. Select the appropriate settings for the specific job you are sending to print. Print
settings selected from the driver override the default menu settings selected from the operator panel.
You may need to click Preferences from the initial Print box to see all of the available system settings you can change.
If you are not familiar with a feature in the printer driver window, open the online Help for more information.

NOTE: This item is available when using the PCL or PS driver.
Proof Print
When you specify multiple copies for a collated job, this feature allows you to print only the first set for checking, before
proceeding to print the remaining copies at the printer.
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 printer 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.
NOTE: This item is available when using the PCL or PS driver.
Storing Print Jobs
When you select a job type other than "Normal Print" in the "Paper/Output" tab of the printer driver, the job will be stored
in temporary memory or stored on the hard disk until you request to print it from the operator panel.
NOTE: Secure Print and Private MailBox Print require specifying a password for confidentiality.
Printing the Stored Jobs
Once jobs are stored, you can use the operator panel to specify printing. Select the job type you are using from Secure
Print, Private MailBox Print, Public MailBox Print, and Proof Print. Then, you select your user name from a list. Secure Print

Understanding 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 printer has numerous resident fonts in PCL 5/PCL 6 and 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 BdOb. 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 10-pitch 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 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 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 printer. Scalable fonts provide the flexibility
of printing in many different point sizes.
Your printer uses different scalable font formats for downloading fonts to the printer. PCL 5/PCL 6 uses Intellifont and
TrueType scalable fonts. 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 printer.
Resident Fonts
Your printer is equipped with resident fonts stored permanently in print memory. Different fonts are available in PCL
5/PCL 6 and PostScript 3. Some of the most popular typefaces, like Courier and TimesNew (PCL 5/PCL 6)/Times New
Roman (PostScript 3), are available for all printer languages.
The following table lists all the fonts resident in your 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 printer has 36 symbol sets for the resident PCL 5/PCL 6 fonts.

Printing and Using the Utilities
Precautions and Limitations
Overview
The UX Filter
This section describes the features of the UX filter and its operating environment.
Features
The UX filter is an utility software which converts files created by the UNIX workstation into a format which conforms to
the PostScript language loaded in the 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 UX filter.
Operating Environment
Text files, SunRaster image files (for Solaris only), TIFF image files and XWD image files received from a workstation
connected to a 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 printer.

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 printer will output in 10point 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)

-Jown= jobownername: Password: jobgroupname Authentication Setting
Specifies job owner name, password and job group name 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 entered to specify a job owner name, "UnknownUser" becomes the
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 become the job owner name.
When an unacceptable character is entered in a job group name, the job owner name is treated as not
specified.
NOTE: Alphanumeric characters, including spaces and colons, and symbols can be entered to specify a job owner
name.
NOTE: Up to 32 characters can be entered to specify a group name.
When an unacceptable character is entered in a 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: 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 | lp
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
% lp file.ps
To convert the output result of the command into the PostScript language program using txt2ps2 and print it to the
printer, type as follows:
% ls -alF | txt2ps2 | lp
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/dellbin5130/.dellpsdefault5130
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 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.

not specified, the standard input will be taken as the command input. SunRaster files with a pixel depth of 1, 8, 24, and
32 bits can be specified.
sunran2ps2 takes filename as having been created in 72dpi and calculates the output size. Thus, to convert SunRaster
files created in other resolutions, specify the size option (-s, -S) explicitly.
Option
-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.

-Jown= jobownername: Password: jobgroupname Authentication Setting
Specifies job owner name, password and job group name 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 entered to specify a job owner name, "UnknownUser" becomes the
job owner name.
NOTE: Alphanumeric characters, including spaces and colons, and symbols can be entered to specify a job owner
name.
NOTE: Up to 32 characters become the job owner name.
When an unacceptable character is entered in a job group name, the job owner name is treated as not
specified.
NOTE: Alphanumeric characters, including spaces and colons, and symbols can be entered to specify a job owner
name.
NOTE: Up to 32 characters can be entered to specify a group name.
When an unacceptable character is entered in a 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: 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

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.
Option
-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.
-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 duplexer is installed on the printer.

Function
Reads XWD 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. XWD files with a pixel depth of 1, 4, 8, 24, and 32 bits
can be specified.
There are three types of supported compression formats.
The visual class is Static Gray and the pixel is 1 bit.
The visual class is Pseudo Color and the pixel is 4 bits or 8 bit. The image format is Zpixmap.
The visual class is True Color and the pixel is 24 bits or 32 bit. The image format is Zpixmap.
xwd2ps2 takes filename as having been created in 72dpi and calculates the output size. Thus, to convert XWD files
created in other resolutions, specify the size option (-s, -S) explicitly for conversion.

-Jown= jobownername: Password: jobgroupname Authentication Setting
Specifies job owner name, password, and job group name 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 entered to specify a job owner name, "UnknownUser" becomes the
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 become the job owner name.
When an unacceptable character is entered in a job group name, the job owner name is treated as not
specified.
NOTE: Alphanumeric characters, including spaces and colons, and symbols can be entered to specify a job owner
name.
NOTE: Up to 32 characters can be entered to specify a group name.
When an unacceptable character is entered in a 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: 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 printer, type as follows.
% xwd2ps2 file.xwd | lp
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 printer.
If the print position option (-lleft bottom) specifies a point beyond the printable area of the printer, data beyond
the printable area will not be printed.
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 UX 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 UX filter into the default directory (/usr/local/dellbin5130), it's necessary to create /usr/local
directory in advance.
HP-UX
The 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 UX filter into the default directory (/usr/local/dellbin5130), it's necessary to create /usr/local
directory in advance.
During Printing
Pay attention to the following points during printing.
Using lp/lpr Command (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.)
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 printer, data
beyond the printable area will not be printed. (Using Solaris, it's impossible to output images by lp command.)
Using txt2ps2 (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 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 printer.
If the print position option (-l left bottom) specifies a point beyond the printable area of the printer, data beyond
the printable area will not be printed.
Using tiff2ps2 (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 (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.
Printing PostScript Files (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
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 A4-size 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 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.
TBCPFilter (Solaris/HP-UX)
Make sure the TBCPFilter is available so the printer can specify the availability of the TBCPFilter.

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 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 printer
installed and working, this is configuration and the customer would be responsible for paying.

Adjusting Color Registration
Periodically, your printer requires you to complete certain tasks to maintain optimum print quality. If several people are
using the printer, you may want to designate a key operator to maintain your printer. Refer printing problems and
maintenance tasks to this key operator.
Determining the Status of Supplies
If your printer is connected to the network, the Dell™ Printer Configuration Web Tool can provide instant feedback on
remaining toner levels. Type the printer's IP address in your web browser to view this information. To use the E-Mail
Alert Setup feature that notifies you when the printer requires new supplies, type your name or the name of the key
operator in the e-mail list box.
On the operator panel, you can also confirm the following:
Any supply or maintenance items that require attention replacing (However, the printer can only display
information about one item at a time.)
Amount of toner remaining in each toner cartridge
Conserving Supplies
You can change several settings in your printer driver to conserve toner cartridge and paper.
Supply
Setting
Toner Saving

Mode in the
cartridge Advanced tab of
the printer driver
Print
media
Multiple Up in the
Layout tab of the
printer driver
Function
This check box allows the users to select a print mode that uses less toner. When this
feature is used, the image quality will be lower than when it is not used.
The printer prints two or more pages on one side of a sheet. Values for Multiple Up are
2 Up, 4 Up, 8 Up, 16 Up, or 32 Up. Combined with the duplex setting, Multiple Up
allows you to print up to 64 pages on one sheet of paper. (32 images on the front and
32 on the back)
Storing Print Media
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.

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 (MPF).
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 that the recommended print side is face up when you insert the print media. Also, the recommended print
side should be face down when using the MPF.
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 that all cables that connect to the printer are correctly attached.
