Just be be 100% clear:

If you convert a PDF file to PS through pdftops, then send the PS file though PeasyPDF's Print function, it works with your fax machine?

answer: Yes, it woks.

I'm confused, because your example above appears to be sending the fax as a PDF without converting to PS.

answer: It works also from peasypdf without converting to PS. According to efaxs README, the current ghostscripts version would allow sending the fax as a PDF without converting to PS, for single and multipage pdf document as well Smile .
So no more need then to perform a PS conversion step before sending the fax

Sorry if discovering this now in real time ... Embarassed i'd only remembered that, in some circumstances, i'd got an error message trying to fax pdf files.

OK. I'm going to implement this feature anyway as an option. I recall seeing another situation where the printer driver really wanted to see PS instead of PDF.

Stand by for v3.0!

PeasyPDF v3.0 is posted above. Its Print function now supports older printer drivers that need Postscript source data instead of PDF.

PostPosted: Fri 26 Sep 2014, 04:17    Post_subject: .PDF .pdf capital vs low case characters  

Hi rcrsn51,
... just to mention that:
the conversion to pdf of graphic files creates a CONVERTED.PDF in /tmp/PDFCONVERT folder, using the extension .PDF with capital police.

I've experimented that a .PDF (capital character) to-a-mail-attached-document is unreadable for the recipient under Linux - ... don't know for WIndows users - (i'm using the across Europe well know "scarlet" webmail provider). Modifying the extension to .pdf (lowcase character) solves the «problem».

Did someone already experience this ?

Thanks for any answer.

Cheers, Charlie

Interesting. I chose the upper-case name CONVERTED.PDF so it would be easy to identify and I assumed that users would rename it to something else.

I don't know why an e-mail service would reject the name. Maybe they have a list of legal file types that they will allow as attachments, but only lower-case file extensions are on the list.
