foo2qpdl 0.20100615 Description:
foo2qpdl is a Linux printer driver for QPDL protocol. foo2qpdl is an open source printer driver for printers that use the QPDL wire protocol for their print data, such as the Samsung CLP-300 or the Samsung CLP-600. These printers are often erroneously referred to as winprinters or GDI printers. However, Microsoft GDI only mandates the API between an application and the printer driver, not the protocol on the wire between the printer driver and the printer. In fact, QPDL printers are raster printers which happen to use a very efficient wire protocol. QPDL is just one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc. This driver uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components to the foo2qpdl printer driver.
