Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide

Printing from dt Applications

The print action field in the dt configuration files should be modified to add the Hebrew text filter. For example, in the dtmail application, the print action in the file /usr/dt/appconfig/types/he/dtmail.dt should be:

ACTION Print  
LABEL           Print 
TYPE            COMMAND
EXEC_STRING     sh -c ' \                                 
                dtmailpr -p -f %(File)Arg_1% | 
                /usr/lib/lp/postscript/convert_text -inputTextMode text_mode_implicit
                -outputTextMode text_mode_visual -lineWidth 80 -inputLayoutDirection left_down
                -outputLayoutDirection right_down| mp -A4 -L he| dtlp -u %(File)Arg_1%;'

The listed convert_text parameters will print right-aligned text right-to-left. To print text aligned to left, left-to-right replace the previous parameters with -lineWidth 80.
