Well, I would like to believe „solutions“ like this are not needed anymore in
2014... :-/ No way to tell to printer to split large page to several A4?

In the old days, we used the "poster" commandline tool in the KDE3
print dialog to do this, but that only supports Postscript files. It's
still available in the main repo.

Last time I needed it, it failed (Error: /limitcheck in -file-GPL
Ghostscript 9.06: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1)

Subject: [opensuse] Printing posters

I then asked on the forum, and got some good answers:


There is also pdfposter
( which does the same
for PDF's.

Somehow I did not succeed with this one.

For a GUI you can try KPrinter4

Didn't know of it.

PosterRazer also appears to be another option

This one worked good, it is what I finally used.
