    EBS R12.1.3 direct printing


      Hi ALL,


      EBS R12.1.3






      We have a printer EPSON 2175 defined in our EBS apps instance.

      The requirement for this printer is to print directly from concurrent manager (meaning not using browser).

      Print all text and PDF output directly from the concurrent manager.

      When we print text reports, it can print successfully.

      But if we print PDF the output is "greek" or unprintable characters or the printer is not able to translate.


      How do I resolve this PDF issue without using PASTA? or Is it the only way to go?

      I have been reading PASTA but I find it hard to setup and implement


      Do I only need this line for PASTA? Or There lots of setup to do?

      The default configuration file is $FND_TOP/resource/pasta.cfg and by adding the following line to this file, PCL printing is enabled for both text and PDF output:

      preprocess=gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pxlcolor -dNORANGEPAGESIZE -sOutputFile={outfile} {infile}




      Please help...


      KInd regards,
