When I try the direct printing by "Fop foo.fo -print" the Windows 2000 Fax wizard pops up.
My first try for direct printing was to use the "Java Communications API" with a PCL ByteArrayOutputStream. I set my port to LPT1 and all was fine except the PCL Rendering. So PCL rendering couldn't help me. Now I try above and the result is again not that what I want. Why the hell does this wizard pops up? I don't want send anything to a fax. I want to print directly to MY printer on LPT1, without any interaction. By the way, AWT rendering "Fop foo.fo -awt" works fine. Nevertheless I want it on paper and not as a preview. So, can anyone tell me how to achieve my printout? Or isn't it possible at all? Any hints are welcome! regards, Darya --- Darya Said-Akbari <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> schrieb: > Thanks for your hint. > > In all I have 1 second to get an Bean Object into my > FO file and then on paper.
