.SH NAME
GSinterface \- LP interface script for using ghostscript under lpsched
.SH SYNOPSIS
.na
\fBGSinterface\fB 
[request\-id] [user] [title] [copies] [options] [files]
.SH DESCRIPTION
This shell script is intended to be uses as an LP interface script on
Solaris 2.6 and later systems.  It allows print queues to be configured
under LP using Ghostscript to render for the printer.
.PP
Configuration under lpsched is performed via the
.BR lpadmin(1M)
command.  
.PP
.nf
.na
	# lpadmin -p printer -v /dev/... -I"postscript,pdf" -Tunknown \\
		-i /usr/sfw/share/ghostscript/interfaces/GSinterface \\
		-o GS_DEVICE=(gs-device-type) \\
		[-o OutputFile=(file/device)] [-o PAPERSIZE=(size)] \\
		[-o RESOLUTION=XxY] [-o banner-type=(ascii|postscript)] \\
		[-o GS_OPTIONS="-sIjsServer=... -sIjsParams=..."]
.ad
.fi
.PP
Valid values for the GS_DEVICE setting can be obtained from Ghostscript by
running: "gs \-h". This will dump a variety of information about Ghostscript's
usage and compile time configuration.  The "Available devices:" section
lists the formats that Ghostscript will render to.  You will need to match one
of these formats to the format that your printer takes as input.
