Print Drivers

Configure a printer to write postscript:

  • Click on the following link:
    • Scroll down the list of downloads until you see "Printer Drivers" and click on the Windows option
    • Scroll down this list until you find:
      • Adobe Universal PostScript Windows Driver Installer (for Windows 95, 98, 98 Second Edition, Millennium Edition, Windows NT 4.0, and 2000) - English
    • Click on Download from this page.
    • Run this executable.The installer will insall the latest version of the AdobePS Driver for each supported platform.
  • Now, using the link below, download the Agfa drivers.
  • Unzip the Agfa print drivers and add a new local printer choosing the Agfa-ACCUSET 1000SF v52.3 driver and setting the destination to be "file".
  • The only change you'll need to make for the Agfa driver is to go into the Advanced Postscript options and turn off the "send control-D" before or after sending the page (it is not necessary for this command to exist in the postscript file, and it causes problems in some RIPs).
  • When you print to your new printer, it will prompt you for a file name. This will be your postscript file, and the name should end in either .ps or .prn.
  • If you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat, you can test your postscript by distilling it to create a PDF file.
