| Trying some double page printing from KGhostview (or kpdf, gpdf, etc).
| Basically this is implemented as a filter using psnup.
| Every time I try this, the rightmost page is always cropped off the
| page. I tried doing it manually using psnup and playing with command
| line arguments, but I can't seem to get this sorted.
| Anyone ever see this and sort it?
sounds like an issue with the printer's margins.
you may be able to change the margins, either in
the printing tool(s) or on the printer itself.
alternatively, perhaps something like the following
will work? this is the script I use for my margin
problem; whilst it is "tuned" to my printer and for
normal ("ASCII") text --- note the a2ps(1) --- it's
the pstops(1) magic which is the key bit:
=====(cut here and below)=====`a4dup'====(line to `a4one')=====
case $0 in
*a4one) a2ps -o - "$@" | pstops '0 at .95(1cm,2cm)' ;;
*a4dup) a2ps -o - "$@" | pstops '2:0 at .95(1cm,2cm),1 at .95(-0.5cm,2cm)' ;;
*) echo -e \
"$0: Unknown A4 printing, use \"a4one\" (single sided)
or \"a4dup\" (double sided)" >&2
=====(cut here and above)=====`a4dup'====(line to `a4one')=====
obviously, yer kiloage will vary.
I'm sre there are yet other approaches.
and it might not even be a margins issue at all?
