Printing Under hatari

Postby thesender604 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 5:22 pm

hi all
Ive kinda browsed through the manual for hatari and it says that the print emulation prints to a file which you can then edit with some kind of text editor to get at simple text but graphics are a nono but what if the printer is one that the atari has drivers for and the printer is connected to the printer port instead of usb is it then possible to send the print file to the printer under windows and it to print it correctly i have an epson stlylus photo 750 and nvdi has a driver for it so if it is possible could someone tell me how to do it please :)

My first guess would be, let hatari print to the file, imagine it's called C:\OUTPUT.PRN, then open cmd and type:

Code: Select all

copy C:\OUTPUT.PRN /B PRN


and see if that does what you want. You might try with saving a file C:\HELLO.TXT from Notepad or whatever and copying that first, just to make sure the copy command works.

A quick word of warning if other people try this make sure you use the right drivers on the atari side cause if you dont you could end up with your printer running for a long time (about 6hrs so far) and seems like no way to stop it :( even turning the printer of for a few hours restarting windows just doesnt seem to stop it :(
hey ho teach me to pay attemtion to which printer driver is being used :D

well suused how to stop it
under cmd you need to type net stop spooler
then goto
C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers
and delete everything in there
then restart the spooler
