2100config - configure a HP 2100 LaserJet Printer
uses HP's PJL (Printer Job Language) to configure a HP 2100 series printer. The final goal is to provide total control over the 2100's configuration.
- -C on|off
- turns dark courier font on or off. Turn on to produce output similar to older LaserJet models
- -D num
- sets density to num. Not sure what this does. May have something to do with how much toner is used. Experiment and let me know.
- -E on|off
- turns economode on or off. Helps save toner by printing the outline of each letter. Also, solid black graphics are rendered as light gray.
- -L 1|2|3
- Lock tray 1|2|3. Prevents the printer from using paper from the specified tray (1, 2, or 3). Tray three is an optional 2100 accessory. See -U option.
- -P printer_name
- printer_name is a printer defined in the system printcap file. If the -P options is not specified, 2100config uses the PRINTER environment variable.
- -R 300|600|1200
- sets resolution in dots per inch (dpi). Not sure if this affects PostScript printing.
- -t num
- prints a test page, depending on num: 1 prints self test/configuration page, 2 prints all installed PCL fonts, 3 prints all installed PS fonts, 4 should do a PS configuration, but it doesn't work, and 5 should print a PS demo page, but it also doesn't work.
- -U 1|2|3
- Unlock tray 1|2|3. Reverse of -L option.
Probably lots. Hasn't been extensively tested yet. Print a configuration sheet (hold down both buttons on the 2100 for a second or use option -t 1) to verify the configuration changes.
