I happen to know a thing or two about printing, PDF, PostScript, PJL, Fonts and related stuff.

Also familiar with some bits and pieces of Linux, Unix, Samba and Solaris printing. Not to forget bash programming and Windows cmd.exe batch scripting. I also do consultancy in these topics.

If you want, I share some of this knowledge here and on Stackoverflow (SO). Just click to browse for all.

comment How to resume CUPS printer from command line?
@Sepero: All possible cupsd.conf parameters up to CUPS v1.7 are documented here: http://www.cups.org/documentation.php/doc-1.7/ref-cupsd-conf.html. Check the annotations for each parameter on the right edge of the page: it will tell you which CUPS release was the first to support it. Happy discovery of more useful params! :-)

comment How to resume CUPS printer from command line?
@Sepero: Yes. For example: you can try JobRetryInterval 58 to try every 58 seconds. Other possible values are 1w (1 week), 3d (3 days), 7h(7 hours) or 4m (4 minutes).

comment I want to change DPI with Imagemagick without changing the actual byte-size of the image data
@LeoIzen: I explained in detail that the DPI is only meaningful for 'rendering to devices'. Which means, the area would not stay constant. Which is why your downvote is not justified.
