Weird PDF error. (General)

posted by JayArr(R), Mission BC Canada, 05.01.2016, 15:32

Hi All

I built a new server for SQL-Ledger and when I got to the end of the
build
I encountered this error when trying to print to my printer using the
PDF
format.

This isn't a screen error, it is what is printed out on the piece of
paper
that comes out of my printer.

ERROR: limitcheck
OFFENDING COMMAND: PDF Parser: Damaged PDF file, failed reading trailer.
STACK:


The weird part is that I can print PDF to the 'screen' and it works, I
can
either open the file with acrobat or I can save it and open it later and
it's fine. THe problem only occurs when printing PDF format to the
printer.

I can print postscript format to the printer or screen and it works
perfectly.

So the install is in a "workable" form but I can't help but feel I
should
be able to print PDF to the printer.

Any ideas?

Server Specs:
FreeBSD9.2
Apache24
Perl5
Postgres9
Texlive-full-2015
"Latex=1" is uncommented in sql-ledger.conf
I've tried it with and without the DVI option in sql-ledger.conf
I've set the alternate "/usr/local/bin" option in sql-ledger.conf

Use the postscript format to send printjobs to the printer.

Thanks Dieter! That's what I'm doing. I think I was able to print pdf to the printer on the last install because I had CUPS installed. This time I built the server without CUPS, using only LPD. It works with postscript and it's one less package I have to maintain on the machine.
