If you look inside cairo_set_page_size, it sets /PageSize exch def /ImagingBBox null def You could try changing the names one at a time to something that won't exist, like PageSizexxx to see if one or the other has a value that the printer doesn't like. Maybe the null ImagingBBox messes up the printer. A lot of ppd files have sequences like "<</PageSize[612 792]/ImagingBBox null>>setpagedevice", so a null ImagingBBox should be OK.
setpagedevice can give an error if the printer does not support the PageSize. https://www.prepressure.com/postscript/troubleshooting/errors/setpagedevice Regards, William ________________________________ From: Pierre-Luc Samuel <pierre-luc.sam...@ticketmaster.com> Sent: Monday, September 19, 2016 4:51 PM To: William Bader; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [poppler] pdftocairo Offending Command error when printing On 09/19/2016 12:54 PM, William Bader wrote: Can you try it with the current pdftocairo 0.47.0? The source is at https://poppler.freedesktop.org/ I did try with pdftocairo 0.47 + cairo 1.15.2, but the resulting file is identical. Do any of the non-printing ps files get errors if you view them with ghostscript? No, ghostscript shows no errors... Test-jma-Envelop-Blank-pdftocairo0.41-cairo1.14.6-manually-fixedC.ps got a /dictstackunderflow in --end-- error for me, but that is because it has an extra 'end' in the trailer. Yeah, manually-fixedC is probably broken, that was a lame attempt at finding the issue. If you think that the problem is the setpagedevice call, you could comment the line '266 621 cairo_set_page_size' in the ps and try to print it. setpagedevice is usually OK unless you are trying to make an EPS. When I was using an older version of poppler + libcairo, that section was not there at all, but not having it causes other issues (namely, the printer doesn't know the page size and sends it to a random paper tray). I'm actually upgrading BECAUSE I want that section!

When I convert the attached PDF to postscript using pdftops, the printer accepts and prints the file properly, but when I use pdftocairo, the printer rejects the file with the following error: Error name: /configurationerror Offending Command: --setpagedevice-- Operand Stack: -dict- Even when removing _everything_ on the pdf, as the examples I have a attached, I still get the "Offending Command" error. I have tried examining the content of the files, but I have a hard time pinpointing what could be wrong in the pdftocairo-generated file. I am attaching 3 additional files (A,B,C) that show attempts I made to modify the file (thought maybe the page size/bounding box was the issue) but all three have failed printing with the same error... Anyone have ideas of what I should investigate? Thanks, Pierre-Luc
