Re: [opensuse] Cups compatibility

from sending postscript to sending pdf

If you set the printer to RAW in CUPs that should
revert. Your printer driver is then responsible for
sending postscript with the proper ppd etc.

Conversion to pdf from postscipt, hpcl, epsom, etc is so well
solved that if your printer can handle PDF directly it is
by far the preferable way to go.

Also if your cups client notices that some upstream cups server
can accept PDF, that's the preferred route for it to take.

The idea is to suppress redundant packaging and unpackaging
at each CUPS server.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
