I'm not no familiar with the PCL renderer, so I can't help here immediately. But you've got the possibility to use the AWT renderer and print directly to a printer. Have a look at the documentation and the FOPPrintServlet in docs/examples/embedding.
Another possibility is to create a PDF or a PS file and use GhostScript to convert it to the target printer format (ex. PCL). This will be rather slow, though. Or you can print a PDF on the command line using Acrobat Reader. Examples of everything should also be in the mailing list archive and maybe even in the FAQ. > trying to convert a FO file including some bitmap > images to PCL ends up with: > > [INFO]: FOP 0.20.3 > [INFO]: building formatting object tree > [INFO]: rendering areas to PCL > [INFO]:  > [ERROR]: null > > The only image format which is recognized by FOP/PCL > is the GIF format.
