Generating PDF documents with Ghostscript
You probably wouldn't bother reading this if you wouldn't have a basic idea about what you want to do. There are dozens of pages out there to explain the installation of Ghostscript (for Microsoft Windows) and how to use Ghostscript for generating PDF documents, so I'll try and keep it nice and simple.
You'll find instructions on how to:
The local installation has been tested on Microsoft Windows NT4, Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional. The network printer installation has been tested with Windows 2000 Server and Windows XP Professional.
Both might work with 9x flavors, but there's no guarantee for that. If in doubt, have a look at the readme files which come with the software packages.
Prerequisites - Software needed
You'll have to download the software packages needed for the installation you want. See the "Related Downloads" page for more details.
Installation of the software should be straightforward:
- Install Ghostscript. Follow the on-screen instructions. The default directory "C:\gs" is fine -- if you need to change that, you'd probably be better off if you keep the directoy names rather simple, as you need to edit the scripts accordingly. You may need to stick to 8.3-Notation for the directories (so "C:\program files" becomes "C:\progra~1" within the scripts)
- Install RedMon. There's hardly any configuration involved at all.
