Subject Re: problems with printing: fop-0.91
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2006 03:44:59 GMT
Tim,

you didn't say which renderer (output format) you used for your attempts
at printing. If you used PCL that renderer is non functional in the FOP
0.91 release (that's why it is in the sandbox area). See also
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/status.html.

Your best option is probably to go via PDF and print the PDF file.
Actually the very best option is if you could find the time to fix the PCL
renderer :-).
