Summary0000929: Make savapage.ppd PostScript only
DescriptionIST: Current savapage.drv has:
DriverType custom
Filter application/vnd.cups-postscript 100 -
Filter application/vnd.cups-pdf 0 -
With this setup, the postscript filter, having cost 100, is never selected when PDF filter with zero cost is available (which is always the case for GNU/Linux client). Now, when landscape orientated documents are printed with SAVAPAGE.ppd, the generated PDF has pages in landscape orientation, with 270 page rotation. As a result the User Web App shows the landscape document in portrait orientation.
SOLL: Make savapage.drv "DriverType ps" and remove "Filter" entries. A print of a landscape document will generate PostScript in portrait orientation with 90 page rotation. This is converted to PDF by server-side SavaPage, using ghostscript (ps2pdf). The disadvantage of increased CPU load by ps2pdf, does not outweigh the advantage of unambiguous representation.
