foo2lava is an open source printer driver for printers that use the Zenographics LAVAFLOW wire protocol for their print data, such as the Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W or the Konica Minolta magicolor 2530 DL or the Konica Minolta magicolor 1690MF or the Konica Minolta magicolor 2490 MFor the Konica Minolta magicolor 4690 MF. These printers are often erroneously referred to as winprinters or GDI printers. However, Microsoft GDI only mandates the API between an application and the printer driver, not the protocol on the wire between the printer driver and the printer. In fact, LAVAFLOW printers are raster printers which happen to use a very efficient wire protocol which was developed by Zenographics and licensed by most major printer manufacturers for at least some of their product lines. LAVAFLOW is just one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc.<br /><br />This driver uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are six major components to the foo2lava printer driver.<br /><br /> * foo2lava - the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver.<br /> * foo2lava-wrapper - a shell script (compatible with foomatic) which runs ghostscript and foo2lava in a pipeline.<br /> * icc2ps - converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the users Postscript program.<br /> * foomatic-db - foomatic database entries which describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2lava-wrapper.<br /> * lavadecode - a tool for developers to inspect LAVAFLOW streams.<br /> * opldecode - a tool for developers to inspect OPL streams. <br /><br />You can read the manual pages for more information.
